Greek Poetry – The Diasporic Dimension: Graduate Workshop 7th February 2017

Our next Graduate Workshop will take place on Tuesday 7th February 2017 at 1 pm  in Room G 16 in the William Robertson Wing of the School of History, Classics and Archaeology (Doorway 4 of the Old Medical School).

Maria Athanassiou, a third year PhD student at the International Centre for Musical Studies at the University of Newcastle will be speaking on Diasporic Elements and Soft Power in the Modern Greek Poetry set to Music.

Maria’s paper will consider the role of modern Greek poetry set to music, in a cultural and international setting.  What does cultural diplomacy mean? In an age of globalisation, how does modern Greek poetry, set to music, represent “soft power”?

All are most welcome to attend.
