03.08.19 Bangkok workshop/training sessions on reading and representing landscapes
On Aug 2nd and 3rd 2019, the Newton Fund project in collaboration with Rilca's research cluster on Aesthetics and Cultural Sociology and Thailand Research Fund organized two training sessions, which were also opened to students, staff and the public audience who are interested in the subject of reading and representing landscapes. The talks connect film fan tourism with discussions on the different ways landscapes have been represented, ranging from cinema and the idea of modernity and romantic city to volatile townscapes connected to colonial and nationalism.
The sessions were engaging and intimate and bringing scholars working on the areas of literature, film production, anthropology and cultural studies together. We were able to explore both the socio-political contexts that shaped different artistic/formal enquiries as well as critical methodology that drives artistic practice/analysis. Thank you all involved for the very enriching two days!
