The Difference Festival
The Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities at the University of Westminster is hosting a week-long (and timely) celebration of Difference from February 27th to March 3rd that will pay homage to the history and roots of the institution, whilst showcasing the work of staff, students, alumni and friends, aspiring to ‘instruct and delight’.
Friends of the IMCC may be particularly interested in some events involving our members and affiliates – including Anne Witchard and Derek Hird discussing The Chinese Experience in London (Monday 27th, 1-2), Gwilym Jones on Shakespeare’s Storms (Tuesday 28th, 1-2) and Federica Mazzara, Côme Ledésert and the artist Maya Ramsay discussing the representation of the so-called ‘migrant crisis’ in the Mediterranean (Thursday 2nd, 6.30-8.30) – but there are a whole interesting events taking place during the week, including a screening on the Friday of the silent film Broken Blossoms (1919) at the Regent Street Cinema, with organ accompaniment.
