Working under the title, "It must be Nova Scotia:" Negotiating Place in the Writings of Elizabeth Bishop," the conference will focus on Bishop's examinations of place and placelessness, her fascination with borders and shifting cultural geographies, and her unique position as an artist who lived and wrote both for and against competing definitions of "home."

The Ustinov Intercultural Forum is currently seeking additional artists to submit their work for this cultural exhibition which will run at the Old Fulling Mill in Durham, UK from early April to early May 2011. The project aims to create a multi-media exhibit of music, video, art, object, clothing, and any other display forms you can think of in order to create a culturally centred exhibition (even written pieces can be incorporated into the exhibit). The goal is to promote interculturality and focus on the message of Cultural Identity--the value is to be in the richness of the multitude of narratives. Cultural Identity is a very fluid and interesting concept especially in such an increasingly globalized world.
