Contact." April 19-22, 2007 in Puebla, Mexico

Cities of Refuge

Seminar Organisers: Zlatan Filipovic & Bidhan Roy, Goldsmiths

"I also imagine the experience of cities of refuge as giving rise to
a place for reflection - for reflection on the questions of asylum
and hospitality - and for a new order of law and a democracy to come
to be put to the test (experimentation)."

Feminism(s) 2006: Feminisms and Literature Postgraduate Seminar.
Sheffield Hallam University, Sheffield, UK, Saturday 11th November 2006.

    A seminar for postgraduates studying literature and feminism to present and discuss their research. The day is primarily concerned with examining the relationship between feminism and literature, the implications of labels such as 'feminist' or 'women's writing', and the impact of feminist literary criticism and politics upon literature today. It is the discussion of these themes across the different topics which is important – the day is devised as a discussion of similar concerns across literature. We would also like to encourage students working with poets, dramatists as well as fiction writers.
