Humanities research seminar and launch of the Open Arts Journal
This event marks the launch this summer of the Open Arts Journal, a peer-reviewed, open access platform for arts scholarship, open to diverse participants, coordinated by the Department of Art History at The Open University.
The first issue, entitled 'Cosmopolitanism as Critical and Creative Practice', is guest edited by Professor Berthold Schoene and Dr Eleanor Byrne (Manchester Metropolitan University) and includes contributions from the visual arts, cultural geography, literary studies and art history.
On 21 October we welcome Professor Marsha Meskimmon to the Open University’s centre in Camden, London, to speak about her article in issue 1 of the Open Arts Journal, 'The Precarious Ecologies of Cosmopolitanism', and Berthold Schoene and Ellie Byrne, in a panel discussion with Open Arts Journal editor-in-chief Leon Wainwright, followed by Q&A.
The event is free and all are welcome but we ask that you please reserve in advance and inform us of any cancellation.
Light refreshments from 6pm. Formal presentations begin at 6.30pm.
