Venice International University

Friday, 16 November 2018. 9 am - 4 pm

The Plenary Workshop consists of a series of short talks and short game-theatre performances by VIU students and professors on a specific theme, which is approached from different angles. This semester the Workshop will focus on Gender, to align with the 2018 World Forum for Democracy organised by the Council of Europe.

Aspects of Gender covered by short talks will span:

  • from social exclusion and mobilisation, to digital ethics;
  • from gender binary issues in medical arenas, to the role of women for the resilience of biological diversity;
  • from gender in the Italian language and in Intercultural Communication;
  • from masculinity in Russian History and Hollywood silent movies, to the women's role in Japanese nation-building;
  • from the representation of Women in Russian Jewish Art to Gender in Renaissance and present-time Venice.
