Workshop “Intercultural Knowledge and Competence – Exploring Connections: Making Meaning of Foreign and Familiar Matters.”
Wednesday, October 17 at 2:00pm to 5:00pm, Hodges Library, 253, 1015 Volunteer Blvd, Knoxville TN
This workshop is a stand-alone workshop but it is, at the same time, also part of the larger project “Mapping ‘Knoxville’ Across Time, Media, and Cultures: Tracing Unexplored Connections Between the Work of Cormac McCarthy, Annemarie Schwarzenbach, and Buddy and the Huddle” that comprises an exhibition and a series of events that explore and highlight the multimedia connections between the photography and journalistic work of Swiss writer Annemarie Schwarzenbach, the fiction of American author Cormac McCarthy, and the music and photography of the German band Buddy and the Huddle across seven decades, from the 1930s to the 1990s. All of these artists and writers visited — or in McCarthy’s case — lived in Knoxville and depicted the South and in particular Knoxville in their works. The events planned throughout October into early November culminate in McCarthyFest (Nov. 1 & 2) and include a film series, lectures, a workshop, panel discussions, a free concert at the Bijou Theatre on Nov. 2, and many opportunities to meet with visiting artists, like the members of the Nuremberg-based German band Buddy and the Huddle and French film makers Véronique Aubouy. All events are listed on the “Connections” webpage at http://mfll.utk.edu/connections/events.php.
