Cloud and Big Data CEE, CIS, Russia Conference 2013
Oct. 7, 2013
Oct. 8, 2013
The conference is designed as a dialogue between musicology, art history and cultural history. A central theme will be how Britain and her people have been portrayed over the last century in various trends, spiritual movements and artistic styles, covering all kinds of arts, including music, literature, theatre, architecture, sculpture and cinematography.
“Not only England, but every Englishman is an island” (Novalis, 1799). The reception of this country, its people and culture has inspired memoirs, essays, books, articles, plays and films. Such a range of material offers potential for a wide range of conference topics.
The symbolism of the homonyms – Britten and Britain – allows us to put the British Britten at the heart of the conference. Intercultural and intertextual connections will be made by reflecting the multifaceted phenomenon of “Britishness” in British culture.
