Putting the Cosmopolitan to Work: Experimental Film and Video
Garfield, Rachel and Wainwright, Leon. 2011. 'Putting the Cosmopolitan to Work: Experimental Film and Video'. In: Cosmopolitan Practice Symposium. MMU, Manchester, United Kingdom. [Conference or Workshop Item]
Abstract or Description
The symposium reviews the relationship between cosmopolitanism and globalisation, how this relationship has been constructed in the past and how it might be construed more fruitfully for the future. Contributors explore in what ways creativity, vision and imagination as they express themselves in contemporary literature, art and theory can be seen as practices that not only promote the development of a cosmopolitan consciousness, but initiate forms of transnational agency.
