    Student exchange with The University of The Fraser Valley In Canada

    Students interested in studying one semester at the University of the Fraser Valley in Canada (UFV)  (http://www.ufv.ca/), within the framework of the international student exchange agreement between the University of Silesia (US) and UFV, are requested to submit the following documents by February 27th 2017 at the IKiLA front office (3rd  floor):

    1. Motivational letter explaining the applicant’s interest in taking specific courses offered by the UFV Humanities Department (3-5 courses):

    https://www.ufv.ca/arfiles/includes/201801-timetable-with-changes.htm#English

     

    1. Document confirming the US grade average (earlier years of studies and the first semester of the academic year 2017-18); the last semester grade average can be submitted by February 27th 2018 but the students interested in this academic opportunity are encouraged to apply earlier.

    In the academic year 2018-2019 three students can take advantage of this student exchange opportunity.

    Please make sure you understand the different semester schedule at UFV. The first semester begins in early September 2018 (international students have orientation sessions at the end of August) and it ends before Christmas. The second semester starts at the beginning of January,  ending  in the last week of April. The Summer semester runs from early May to mid August.

    The selection of students for the one semester studies at UFV will be determined by a special IKiLA Committee by March 8th  2018.

    University of Silesia students do not pay tuition fees at UFV (ca 10.000 CAD  per semester for international students) but they are responsible for covering the cost of accommodation and their travel expenses (return flight to Canada). If two or three students decide to study at UFV in the same semester,  the cost of accommodation,  should they decide to share it, would definitely be reduced to each person.

    More information on the student exchange with UFV can be obtained from Prof. Eugenia Sojka via email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ).  An information session about this academic opportunity will be organized  at the beginning of the second semester. Students who completed their one semester studies at UFV will be ready to answer questions.

IECL Conferences

  • Indigenous Expressions of Culture in Storytelling, Drama, Theatre and Performance –Traditional and Contemporary Canadian and Polish Upper Silesian Perspectives
    Indigenous Expressions of Culture in Storytelling, Drama, Theatre and Performance –Traditional and Contemporary Canadian and  Polish Upper Silesian Perspectives

    A Conference Organized by the University of Silesia,  Poland  and the University of the Fraser Valley, Canada
    April 26-28, 2017, University of Silesia, Sosnowiec campus

    Indigenous Expressions of Culture in Storytelling, Drama, Theatre and Performance –Traditional and Contemporary Canadian and  Polish Upper Silesian Perspectives

    www.fraserus.edu.pl

    Confirmed Speaker: Tomson Highway (Cree)

    “Storytelling is at the  core of decolonizing,  because it is a process of remembering, visioning and creating a just reality […] [it] becomes a lens through which we can envision our way out of cognitive imperialism” (Simpson 89)

    The first of the intended series of conferences dedicated to the exploration of the complexity of Indigenous cultures of North America and minor cultures of Eastern/Central Europe - is a joint project of the Institute of English Cultures and Literatures, Canadian Studies Centre, Department of American and Canadian Studies, Theatrum Research Group and the Centre for the Study of Minor Cultures at the University of Silesia (US), and the Department of English and Indigenous Affairs Office, University of the Fraser Valley (UFV), Canada.  As Canadian and Polish scholars and educators working in the fields of  Indigenous, minor, and transcultural literary and cultural studies, we propose that the first conference will explore the traditional and contemporary expressions of culture in Indigenous America,  specifically Canada, and in the Eastern/Central European territory of Upper Silesia, specifically Poland, with a primary focus on the  acts of resistance, survival and celebration of culture as enacted in storytelling, drama, theatre and performance (DTP). Performance is interpreted broadly including traditional and contemporary music and dance as well as festival events understood as modes of cultural storytelling. We envision the event as a meeting of Indigenous and non-Indigenous scholars representing a variety of disciplines  and Indigenous Canadian and Upper Silesian storytellers, writers,  artists, performers,  educators and community members.

    CORPUS HISTORICUS: THE BODY IN/OF HISTORY
    Sosnowiec, Poland, June 30th‒July 1st 2017
    www.corpushistoricus.wordpress.com

    CALL FOR PAPERS

    The significance of the body in the context of historical narratives has been paramount for the understanding of the contemporary human condition and of the past by which it has been shaped. Our perception of the body and the bodily, seen as both the object and the subject in and of history, has influenced our current understanding of both individual and collective narratives of the past, since, in the words of Donna McCormack, “[f]lesh is woven into history as both the bloody deaths necessary to achieve the desired goals and the skin on which it has become possible to write these new foundational narratives.”[1]
