LUMA Penang – Events for Writers, Arts & Culture

Filed under: from the editor — mollyosc @ 5:53 am

LUMA

The name LUMA refers to the attribute of shining bright. Operating with the concept of keeping an open house, LUMA seeks to support arts and culture endeavours that create avenues towards greater contributions to society. The LUMA vision is about believing in people coming together to shine like bright lights; being generous with their talents, time & resources; and fusing a sense of community in creativity.

Write into the Night : Friday, 24 November  9 .00 – 11.50 pm

Need to stay awake for GTLF’s Bump In The Night? Come hang out with us at LUMA from 9pm – 11:50pm to write, drink, and play word games as we wait for this free special event at Hin Bus Depot.

*

*

Saturday Scribbles :  Saturday, 2 December 12 noon – 5 pm

*

Hosted by MYWriters Penang, the weekly & monthly write-ins at LUMA are when writers gather in one place with their laptops or notebooks (depending on what they use to write) and set aside time to do some serious writing. Not every writer needs it, but often, having other writers hard at work nearby is great motivation for writing. If you get stuck, feel free to discuss the finer points of your plot with whoever else is procrastinating – just try not to disturb those who are already in the zone!

A monthly Critique Session is held every third Monday from 8.00pm onwards. If you have any piece you’d like us to discuss, dissect, workshop, opine on, critique or listen to, do bring it along. If you’re reading during this month’s MYWriters readings, this is the perfect time to run it by an audience who can give you reading & performance tips. (If you’d like us to read it in advance, send it over to anna@annatsp.com)

George Town 3 days Festivals from November – December 2017

Filed under: from the editor — mollyosc @ 4:48 am

The George Town Literary Festival is the largest international literary festival in Malaysia which is supported and funded by the State Government of Penang. Held annually in the World UNESCO Heritage site of George Town, the GTLF is one of the last bastions of free speech in Malaysia and has a specific focus on world literature. The festival invites local and international writers, poets and performers to engage in topics and themes that are crucial to the world we live in. The GTLF believes in the power of free speech and expression, and is committed to being one of the most urgent, vital and provocative literary festivals in the region.

In a world ruled by demagogues, we are reminded of a time when the immortals – the gods – ruled, where myth and legends pervaded our understanding of the world and the cosmos, where human beings were human and the gods immortal. Monsters lived in their midst and it was one of the reasons the gods went to war, to wage battle against fearsome beasts who threatened all manner of destruction. But there were also men who became monsters, who turned against all that was good and all that was human. ‘Monsters & (Im)Mortals’ looks at light and dark; of genius and madness, reality and fantasy, the element of the shadow in literature and of divine tragedy.

The In-Between Arts Festival 2017 will be a showcase that unfolds the diversity of culture and religious celebrations in Penang. A creative collision of art and culture presentation that includes performances, traditional trades, traditional games, local food & beverages as well as a pop-up market where bits from each of the activities will reflect genuine culture of the city. The festival will take visitors in exploring the spellbinding beauty of Armenian Park, the cultural anchor that best expresses the atmosphere. For three days, visitors can learn offerings of the most authentic cultural elements and community events at one place. Get “culture-overloaded” at IbAF2017 where you’ll see, learn and be hands-on with some of Penang’s most precious culture and traditional practices. Link : In-Between Arts Festival

The Rise of China – Penang Institute

Filed under: from the editor — mollyosc @ 3:46 am

Penang Institute is proud to host a public lecture entitled “The Rise of China and the Question of the Confucian World Order” which is scheduled as follows:

Date    : 17 November 2017 (Friday)
Time   : 6.00 PM – 8.00 PM; Door Opens 5.30pm
Venue : Conference Hall 1, Penang Institute, No. 10, Jalan Brown, George Town.

The Rise of China and the Question of the Confucian World Order

Professor Joyce Liu will address the question of epistemic imperialism and discursive coloniality in Confucianism as perceived in the context of East Asia. She will put into perspective contemporary tension of power reshuffling between Pax Americana and Pax Sinica in order to discuss the meaning of the renaissance of Confucianism in China in recent decades. It would be difficult to think the possibility of epidemic decoloniality either in East Asia or in the global context unless we unmask the lure of Confucianism which regains its great impact in the age of neo-liberalist capitalism in the 21st century.

Joyce C. H. Liu

Joyce C.H. Liu is Professor of Critical Theory, Cultural Studies and Comparative Literature in the
Institute of Social Research and Cultural Studies, Chiao Tung University, Taiwan. She is currently the Chair of the Institute of Social Research and Cultural Studies that she founded in 2002. She is also the Director of the International Institute for Cultural Studies of the University System of Taiwan. She has served as the chief editor of the only journal of cultural studies in Taiwan, Routers: A Journal of Cultural Studies, since 2011.

She has been a critic of East-Asian modernity and internal coloniality, particularly through re-reading Chinese intellectual history of the twentieth century and the contemporary geo-politics in inter-Asian societies. Her works concentrate on the question of aesthetics, ethics, and politics, ranging from contemporary critical theories to Chinese political thoughts, to questions of border politics, unequal citizenship, internal coloniality, and visual studies.

Please feel free to circulate this invitation to your family and friends.
