Every year, the Department of Cultures, Languages and Area Studies at the University of Liverpool holds its annual Iberian Week, a series of talks, screenings, exhibitions and activities which celebrates the cultural and linguistic diversity of the Iberian Peninsula.
Iberian Week is held on South Campus at the University of Liverpool, as well as at cultural and commercial venues across the city such as FACT and Lunya. The event is open to students, staff and the general public alike.
This year’s Iberian Week is being held in conjunction with the department’s annual Peers Symposium, and two of our participants in the Latin(o) Digital Art project will be speaking at the symposium.
Our Artist in Residence, Brian Mackern, will open the afternoon session with his talk on the topic of ‘South American New Media Artworks’, followed by Jordana Blejmar, who will be speaking about ‘Toying with History: Playful Memories in Post-Dictatorship Argentina’.
Further details of the symposium can be found here: PeersProgramme(2014)
