Those of you who are in Graz or nearby might be interested in attending a seminar by Assoc. Prof. Werner Delanoy, which will be hosted by Fachdidaktik Anglistik at the University of Graz.
In this seminar, titled Transculturality as a New Paradigm for Culture Learning, Prof. Delanoy will discuss the concept of Transculturality, defined as as “a set of differing theories ranging from an entirely positive appraisal of highly critical comments on hybridisation phenomena”. In addition, there will be a description of the concept with reference to concrete text examples, such as literary texts, student essays and newspaper articles.
The seminar will take place on 5 November 2015 (13:30) in Hörsaal 01.15, which is located in Universitätsplatz 3. You are looking forward to seeing you there!
