U of R hosts international conference on German culture
The Departments of History and International Languages at the University of Regina, in association with Fallada Forum, are hosting an international multi-disciplinary conference, “Berlin’s Culturescape in the 20th Century”, on Sept. 22-24 at the Hotel Saskatchewan. The conference invites academics and contemporary artists to explore the connections between literature and politics, the modernising city and urban cultural expressions, and the search for individual and national identity. Participants from 12 countries will be in attendance, and a conference agenda is available at http://scratchpost.uregina.ca/berlin_culturescape/home.html.
