Wednesday, 21 October 2009
ECU’s Head of the School of Communications and Arts, Professor Clive Barstow and Director of International Centre for Landscape and Language, Associate Professor Glen Phillips have been invited by the University of Shanghai for Science and Technology (USST) to collaborate for the third time in ‘Australian Week’ running from 19 October to 23 October, in Shanghai, China.
Australian Week at the USST is organised by its Centre of Studies of Australian Affairs and Western Culture and aims to create a space to promote Australian studies in different fields such as literature, film, language and the arts.
This year, the USST will exhibit a selection of Australian Films and short films by ECU students put together by Film and Video Lecture, Ms Tania Visosevic.
Associate Professor Glen Phillips will give a talk on on the Aboriginal novelist Kim Scott and discuss “poetry and eco-criticism” and Professor Clive Barstow will speak about “colour, language, signification and perception.”
The Faculty of Education and Arts is honoured to collaborate with the USST in this significant academic activity that benefits students and staff from both organisations.
