Telling Stories from the East: Middle-Eastern and Asian Studies Symposium
conference : humanities : multicultural
31 maaliskuu 2012 00:00 12:00 - 18:30
presented by Estonian Institute of Humanities

Telling Stories from the East is a one-day conference that includes presentations and discussions on the topic of storytelling. The conference will ask: What kind of storytelling traditions there are in Middle-East and Asia? We will introduce each region’s traditions, stories and ways of interpreting them and discuss how the stories are implemented in different fields of culture e.g. literature and performing arts.

The symposium is meant for the students of Estonian Institute of Humanities who have a great interest in Asian cultures. Conference will be an informal project to support and motivate the students in the academic field. It is also a way of developing the cooperation between students and the academic staff as well. Therefore most people among the presenters are teaching Asian cultures in the Estonian Institute of Humanities. But also some students, who are experts in the topic, will also introduce their researches and experience in this field. But the event is open to everyone!

Some of the presentations and discussions will be in Estonian, some will be in English.

Soon the detailed schedule and list of presenters will be available here, as well as registration options.
