Taking Shakespeare and his theatrical world as a temporal and locative point of departure, this seminar brings together papers engaging with depictions of gender in different nations of people and across political borders from the 16th century to the present. With numerous studies over the last four decades that address gender in Shakespeare’s works and on stage, we aim to explore how gender is theorised, staged, and depicted across national and cultural boundaries.

The Lessons of Rome aim at providing a space for reflection for anyone who grasps Italy as an architectural, urban and landscape research laboratory. Defining Italy as a laboratory involves analyzing contexts of urban policies but also as design expériences, theories as well as practices, legacies, mutations and prospects.

With these words in mind, this panel invites abstracts for papers that consider themes of protest in literature, film, and music. Prospective panelists may consider, but are not limited to, texts from authors such as W. E. B. Du Bois and James Baldwin, the impact of larger movements such as the Beats,

Mineral transformation and resource extraction generate some of the most complex environmental, social and economic problems facing humankind and the planet today.
In one way or another, resource extraction and mineral transformation are central to human existence. Like all biological organisms, we are mineral and matter transformers, on very small and very large scales.
