Events in Modern Languages & Cultures
Modern Languages UG Conference '
We would like to extend an invitation to all of you to attend the conference on Saturday 5th March at the Lindisfarne Centre, St Aidan's College: 'Remembering Genocide, Violence and Trauma: The Memorialisation of Difficult Pasts'
This conference is a collaboration between two final year modules in the French and German departments which explore similar themes of trauma and dealing with the past. The day will consist of a series of presentations by students in both module groups on potential memorial designs to commemorate a traumatic event in a Franco-German context. We will also have talks from our two guest speakers:
- Paul Leworthy (PhD candidate at the University of Edinburgh): ‘Style, silence and the unthinkable: an absence of logic or a poetics of dream in Charlotte Delbo's Aucun de nous ne reviendra’.
- Elise Bath (PhD candidate at the University of Newcastle): 'Issues in Representations of Atrocity - Empathy in the Museum Space'.
The day will run from 10am-4pm with coffee and cake provided.
We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible there.
Harriet Matthews, Alice Whitehead, Jon Turner (conference steering committee)
