Cities East and West: New Maps for Research Hosted by the Hejna Chairs in the History of Poland and in Polish Language and Literature, University of Illinois in Chicago

Taking into consideration the ways in which the city can be approached as a polyvalent cultural text, the organizers of Cities East and West: New Maps for Research invite proposals for papers on all aspects of city life, with a focus on cities in the Polish historical space. The goal of the conference is to examine urban enclaves not as monolithic areas of habitation but rather as places of intersection, collision, coexistence, and exchange between classes, races, ideologies, ethnic groups, artistic styles, and private modes of everyday living.

The Seven Secrets of Madame Caprice Silent Theatre

"I woke up from a dream in a place made of brick. It had a stage with a red velvet curtain and a train rolled by with a bell. I felt warm and alive! And you were there! You sat under a giant cartoonish sunflower and people were watching you weep and laugh at the same time. And somewhere in the air, music existed inside tiny little floating proseco bubbles and when they got too close too the sun, they burst in joyful chimes and disappeared, and I disappeared with them! There was an air, quite theatrical about all of it! And with it, it carried the thrill of adventure"
