The Warburg Institute will host its first Postgraduate Symposium. It explores the concept of cultural encounters, focusing particularly on their productive outcomes and on the dynamics of cultural changes across time and space.

This multidisciplinary Symposium covers topics that fall into the unique classification system of the Warburg Library: Image, Word, Orientation and Action. The aim of the Symposium is to map the diverse and intricate forces which have driven cultural encounters in the past and which also help define contemporary societies. The main topics it addresses are: the degree to which productive outcomes can be seen as a conscious reception and reformulation of external ideas and models; the resistances to exchange and in what form this happened; and the long-term implications of such encounters and their outcomes.

Attendance is free of charge. Pre-registrations required: http://bit.ly/2diH3HN
