We will also be screening a documentary House on a Foreign Land/Casa en tierra ajena with a skype Q&A from the director.
The conference is open to all staff, students (UG and PG) and members of the public so if you know anyone who may be interested in attending please do pass this message on. Registration is free and lunch will be provided, along with a drinks reception at the close of the conference.
The art of bregar, coined by Arcadio Díaz Quiñones (2000), describes the constant sheer hard work involved in navigating with the positive and negative processes of everyday life. Across the Caribbean and Latin America, the art of bregar describes not only historical and cultural heritage, but also describes the unpretentious mechanisms of coping that constantly create new concepts and new intricacies of heritage and imaginaries in the present day.
