Ustinov Intercultural Forum

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.

[UPDATE] Bridging the Gaps, Minding the Context Postgraduate Conference, 17th-18th March 2011

updated: 
Thursday, December 2, 2010 - 10:37am
Universidade de Vigo

Bridging the Gaps, Minding the Context is a conference hosted by and designed for PhD and Postgraduate students. It seeks to address a number of issues related to literary studies today, in an attempt to bring together early-career researchers from different disciplines. As the title suggests, this conference proposes to discuss the intersection between literature and culture, and how such connection can successfully reflect deeper changes at other levels: how can borders be crossed in literature? And, how do we cross them when encountering a written text? The fragility and ever-changing nature of meaning and textual veracity will also serve as the starting point from which to explore shifting perceptions of power and authority in the text.
