This event is part of CIDRAL's programme for the 2017/18 academic year, 'Constraints of Creativity'.
Elisabeth Lebovici will be at the University of Manchester for a two-day research event to mark the publication of her new monograph, Ce que le sida m’a fait — Art et activisme à la fin du XXe siècle (JRP Ringier/ La maison rouge, 2017):
‘Interdisciplinarity as Resistance’: A seminar and roundtable with Elisabeth Lebovici
13 October, 10am-noon
Roscoe Building (Roscoe 2.2)
Dr Francesca Billiani, Director of CIDRAL and Senior Lecturer in Italian, The University of Manchester
Lyndsay Muir, PhD Candidate in Applied Theatre, The University of Manchester
Dr Laura Pennacchietti, Research Associate in Italian Studies, The University of Manchester
Dr Léa Vuong, Leverhulme Early Career Fellow, The University of Manchester
As part of her visit, Elisabeth Lebovici will take part in a seminar and roundtable discussion with researchers from Manchester’s School of Arts, Languages and Cultures to reflect on the intersections of genres, disciplines and praxes that have shaped the content and the form of her research. The interdisciplinary nature of her work, which crosses established borders between artistic production and scholarly criticism, academic research and political action, provides in turn a platform for exploring our approaches, as university researchers, to transdisciplinarity, collaboration and public engagement.
This event is free to attend, and open to all. For more information, and/or to reserve a place, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
This two-day research event is organised by Dr Léa Vuong, in collaboration with The University of Manchester’s Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Arts and Languages (CIDRAL), with the support of The Leverhulme Trust, French Studies and CIDRAL at The University of Manchester.
