Performance and Protest in Saving the Whales: A Talk by Sarah Standing

Performance and Protest in Saving the Whales: A Talk by Sarah Standing 1

The Humanities Department presents…………… A Talk by Sarah Standing

Beginning in the mid-1970s, Greenpeace’s “Save the Whales” Campaign became a successful weapon against international whaling.

Today, oceanic warming causes shifts in whale migration, uncertain feeding patterns, and the consequent loss of vitality. In this presentation, I investigate the efficacy of the “Save the Whales” campaign to see ways in which this potent combination of performance and protest might be re-deployed to combat the current threat.

Una cita con la cita. The Cross-cultural Values  of Citations in Postgraduate Research Works 2

Citation processes are shaped in a textual context that characterizes the academic discourse within each genre, such as disciplinary community or cultural framework

The interplay between the citation processes and context in turn generates new knowledge between the writer and reader. In this presentation, I discuss the cross-cultural differences in citations used in their research by post- graduate students writing in Spanish and in English.

Love in the Poetry of St. John of the Cross and Antonio Machado

Love in the Poetry of St. John of the Cross and Antonio Machado 3

The Humanities Department cordially invites you to March’s Works-in-the-Works event

Two Spanish authors propose different ideas of love.

St. John of the Cross, a 16th-century mystic, is devoted

to spiritual, divine love. Antonio Machado, a 20th-century secular writer, focuses instead on the experience of physical, human love. Examined together, their poems dramatize the eternal conflict between body and soul.
