9 am - 1 pm | Room 1G
The plenary workshop is a key VIU event in which professors and students of the Globalization Program explore and discuss a theme chosen together at the beginning of the semester.
This semester the theme will be Heritage and Culture.
Participants will offer their interpretation of an aspect of the chosen theme, working as a class group or on their own, taking inspiration from what has come out of the program of the courses they are attending or presenting their personal experience.
Keywords associated with this semester's theme are:
- - what heritage/culture does one belong to? Family vs Personal
- Where I came from and where do I belong (or feel most belong)
- Living/dead heritage
The program will include performances, dialogues, music and dances with the participation of VIU GP students and professors.
Some talks, presentations and videos will stem from the courses taught by (in order of appearance):
Massimo Brunzin, Carola Drago and Laura Ventruto (Venice International University)
Frank Heidemann (Ludwig Maximilians Universität)
Robin Fleming (Boston College)
Leila Dawney (University of Exeter)
Olga Bychkova and Andrei Kuznetsov (European University at St. Petersburg)
David Schaad (Duke University)
Vera Costantini (Università Ca' Foscari Venezia)
Marta Scaglioni and Francesco Vacchiano (Università Ca' Foscari Venezia)
Jong-Chol An (Università Ca' Foscari Venezia)
Pirmin Bundi (Université de Lausanne)
The detailed program is available in the box at the side of the page.
The Plenary Workshop is a unique opportunity to recognize the VIU community as one, breaking the borders between the courses, training students to address topics of the disciplines taught to a broader audience, revealing the hidden talents of the participants, and forging multicultural and transgenerational bonds.
After the workshop, all participants are invited to a light lunch sponsored by VIU.
