Department of American and Canadian Studies invites all students and faculty to a lecture  entitled  “Beyond the Pines and Wilderness: Landscape in Contemporary Canadian Art,”  which will be delivered by  Prof. Aleksandra Idzior,  Visual Arts Department,  University of the Fraser Valley,  Canada,  on Wednesday June 1st, 2016,  in the lecture Hall 1.49,  at 14:00.

H/Story Historical Society cordially invites everyone to another History Goes Pop! meeting. This time Patrycja Sokołowska will present Necronomicon. The Hidden Story of H.P Lovecraft. The meeting will take place on Friday, 3rd July, 2016 in room 2.23, at 11.30. 

The book investigates relations between the 'East' and 'West' which have been forming and evolving from the Enlightenment until the present times. On the basis of material covering a selection of American, British, and Turkish literature, as well as examples of Western Orientalist painting and musical (operatic) illustrations of analysed issues, the study aims to usher in a deeper and more nuanced understanding of post/colonial phenomena and their broader socio-cultural implications. The work attempts to accentuate the resonances and dissonances between various arts and disciplines, with the view to illuminating the organic nature of both inter- and intra-cultural relationships. The rationale behind such an orientation in research and methodology has not been to arrive at a final eclectic perspective, but rather, to promote a more comprehensive and diverse approach towards the 'Other.'
