CRCEES hosts a major Winter Festival of Arts and Cultures

The Centre for Russian, Central and East European Studies have great pleasure in hosting a major Festival of Arts and Cultures in the Winter season of 2008/2009.

The Winter Festival will showcase the enormous breadth of CRCEES' academic provision in terms of languages and cultures, and will open out an extraordinary wealth of resources to the Scottish and the UK public more widely.

The season includes major academic conferences on Hungary and Latvia and a special symposium entitled 'Inter-cultural Crossings'; where speakers from many European countries will bear witness to the powerful 'crossings' of other cultures into their own.

Throughout the Festival there will be films, exhibitions of visual arts, literary readings, musical events, dramatic performances, 'taster' days for some of the more 'unusual' languages offered by CRCEES and many other events. These events will seek to attract the widest possible public engagement.

The season will end with two major Conferences: in February we will examine good practice in the teaching of the languages and cultures we offer and the season will conclude with the annual CRCEES Research Forum, to be held in Glasgow in April 2009.

Details of events at the Winter Festival, including a programme of events are now available.
