The Centre of Excellence in Estonian Studies 9th Annual Conference is dedicated to performativity and perception at the age of technological change

The 9th annual conference of The Centre of Excellence in Estonian Studies titled „Perception and Performativity in Arts and Culture in the Age of Technological Change“ will take place from 5th to 7th of September in Estonian Literary Museum in Tartu.
Contemporary society is affected by technology on all levels of our lives and it is an important topic for a number of research fields. In culture, the digitalisation is not only visible through the different uses of technology by artist and audience, but more by the new ways of communicating and creating socio-cultural contexts. The conference focuses on these changes in our culture, more precisely in theatre, literature, film, music and folklore.
The keynote speakers of this interdisciplinary conference are cultural theorist and critic professor Mieke Bal from the University of Amsterdam, Netherlands, professor of literary theory Marina Grišakova from University of Tartu and professor Władysław Chłopicki from Jagiellonian University, Poland.
