Food and Drink Call for Papers

Department of History and Material Culture of English Speaking Countries Pedagogical University of Krakow, Poland Call for Papers 2nd International Conference Food and Drink as Symbols: historical perspectives 27-28 October 2017 – Krakow Eating and drinking have always been a part of socialisation. Humans have eaten together and mealtimes are events when the whole family or community comes together. Eating food can also be an occasion for sharing, for giving to others, for example, parents give food to their children, a mother gives her milk to her infant, thus making food a symbol of love and security. Two thousand years ago Jesus taught us to share food with others. He used food for both instruction and revelation, and food items bear a religious symbolism in the way they are made or the way they are eaten. For instance, in Christianity bread and wine have aCzytaj dalej

Competitive Advantage for Global Employability CFP

International Conference 2017:   Intercultural Communicative Competence – A Competitive Advantage for Global Employability (ICCAGE) MIAS School of Business & Interdisciplinary Studies, Czech Technical University in Prague, 22-23 June 2017, Prague, Czech Republic. Deadline for proposals: 28 February 2017 In the highly competitive environment of the globalised world, higher education necessarily faces ever-present challenges such as linguistic and extra-linguistic communication barriers, cultural stereotyping, cross-cultural prejudices, identity conflicts and/or L2 deficiency, which compound the lack of skills to interact successfully. The acquisition of intercultural communicative competence becomes a key professional skill and a primary success factor for university educators, graduates, and researchers in the field, as well as business professionals, international employers, or HR specialists.   Addressing these concerns, the ICCAGE conference will contribute to the on-going debate on intercultural language/communicative skills, and various innovative teaching and training approaches to ICC including global mobility, intercultural mediation and telecollaboration, and in and out-of classroom methodologies.   The conference will offerCzytaj dalej

Call for Papers Shakespeare

Shakespeare and European Theatrical Cultures: AnAtomizing Text and Stage 27 – 30 July 2017 at the University of Gdańsk and The Gdańsk Shakespeare Theatre, Poland This conference will convene Shakespeare scholars at a theatre that proudly stands in the place where English players regularly performed 400 years ago. This makes us ponder with renewed interest the relation between theatre and Shakespeare. The urge to do so may sound like a commonplace, but it comes to us enhanced by the fact that in the popular and learned imagination alike Shakespeare is inseparable from theatre while the theatre, for four centuries now, first in England, then on the continent (Europe) and eventually in the world, has been more and more strongly defined and shaped by Shakespeare. Shakespeare has become the theatrical icon, a constant point of reference, the litmus paper for the formal, technological and ideological development ofCzytaj dalej
