The role of the Centro de Formación Literaria Onelio Jorge Cardoso and the movement of talleres literarios
Par Kumaraswami, Antoni Kapcia, and Meesha Nehru

the large, non-selective municipal system encouraging grassroots cultural engagement and the selective Centro and talleres de vanguardia offering more vocational educational courses. Beyond the post-1990s’ change in policy priorities, this diverse landscape of talleres was the culmination of over forty years of concerted literary development; it also reflected an internal hierarchy that had always existed within the talleres movement, between the drive to provide literary opportunity accessible to all and a growing demand for the provision of more intellectually

’s heartburn, if not its burning heart. Almost everywhere we look in Dada, Futurism repeats in stances indebted to the terms of cultural engagement and visibility initiated by the Italians; the manifesto form in particular, that which announced Futurism to the world in 1909 – and in which the later Dadaist Walter Serner invested such venom during the Zurich Dada phase, having previously already denounced Futurism in essays that dismissed some of the movement’s painters from the realm of art – finds itself at the centre of the expanse of cultural-linguistic activities in

Unlikely though it is that he had cricket in mind when noting that ‘terms of cultural engagement, whether antagonistic or affiliative, are produced performatively’, Homi Bhabha might well agree that the West Indies game bears out his maxim perfectly. After all, his comments on the ‘social articulation of difference’ and the struggle for recognition, along with the

‘How We Laugh and Cry at the Same Thing’, offer windows onto the philosophical and cultural engagements with precisely these questions of mixed or contradictory feelings. 41 This collection honors the messy interplay of positive and negative emotions—one which, it will become clear, was no less vital to early modern culture than it is to our own.

engagement has shifted from broadcasting and delivering culture to all, to encouraging more active engagement, yet some troubling issues persist. When the The Madonna of the Pinks went on national tour, it was surrounded by a host of cultural engagement activities, including working with young people from less privileged areas. As we showed in Chapter 4 , invoking a direct experience of work of art

and outside Saskatchewan, and as such has engaged historians’ attention since the 1980s. This historiography is dominated by public policy analyses, and is undeveloped insofar as social and cultural history is concerned. The interaction between the public and audiences over the 1962 strike illuminates the ways that cultural engagement through historical writing shaped debates about Medicare within the public sphere. For the focus, especially

, especially in comparison to that shown in the case of Indian and Persian literature. Sir William Jones’s famous translations from Sanskrit and Persian were celebrated throughout Europe and were highly influential texts for the Romantic poets, notably Coleridge and Shelley. China, however, did not make the same kind of cultural impression and did not attract the kinds of cultural engagement that one might have predicted. This chapter explores the vexed relation of Romantic-period writing and China by developing an imagined, counterfactual account of what might have been had

For this reason, sport, among other cultural forms such as the visual and performing arts, has been championed in the White Paper and elsewhere as a promising domain of diplomacy (broadly defined as encompassing political, economic, social and cultural exchange in both formal and informal environments).34 The place of sport within Australian diplomacy of different kinds now requires more detailed exploration. Sport and diplomacy in Australia In seeking to capture an elusive concept there is a significant and growing body of

The career of William Lewis

poetic technique is not always secure; but it is not, all the same, an unserious question to have asked: for the parallel that the lines propose between the skills of the poet and those of the preacher surely must have been central to someone with Lewis’s training and cultural engagements. Memories of Fenton as a preacher here shape the space within which the memorial poem can be received: But when I came where hee did diuinely steale Away admiring heart[e]s Enflamd with Zeale And like a fruitfull meteor showre like snow, Vpon their head[e]s, Beloued It is Soe
