Update: Seminar Meeting Wednesday 22nd Oct

The next meeting of our seminar will take place tomorrow at 5:30 pm in the FIGS common room. Due to a programme change, we will guest two speakers:

  • Alexandra Lee will present a chapter plan from her project “Plague and piety: the Bianchi of 1399 at Lucca and Pistoia”
  • Naomi Fukuzawa will talk about a chapter from her dissertation titled “Self, love and ghosts – narrating modern Japan in the literature of Lafcadio Hearn, Pierre Loti, Mori Ogai and Natsume Soseki”

No need to prepare or bring anything, just come along to listen to Alex’s and Noami’s presentations over wine and nibbles, with a discussion afterwards.

See you then,

Seminar Meeting Wednesday 22nd October at 5:30 pm

The next meeting of our seminar will take place on Wednesday, 22nd October at 5:30 pm in the FIGS common room.

Tina Sørensen will be talking about Beyond Rush Hour, which is an art photographic project attempting to give new perspective on rural Denmark. Inspired by Jacques Rancière’s notion of ‘the distribution of the sensible’ Tina will investigate how the photographs might have a capacity to reconfigure the way peripheral areas in Denmark are made sensibly accessible.

No need to prepare or bring anything, just come along to listen to Tina’s presentation over wine and nibbles, with a discussion afterwards.
