Summer Courses "CONSTANTIN BRANCUSI"
Taking into consideration that many scholars and students are interested in the Romanian language, culture, and civilization, the University of Craiova organizes, between 1-24 August 2009, the 14th edition of The International Summer Courses.
These courses are open to all specialists in Romanian or Romance languages and to all those interested in our language and culture.
In the language teaching section, the courses are on three levels: beginners, intermediate and advanced.
The participants follow an intensive teaching programme of 20 hours weekly, from 830 to 1230.
Statements, discussions and workshops are to be held between 1230-1330 on the following topics:
- Romanian Avangarde in literature and art.
- Crucial moments in Romanian History (Vlad Tepes - Dracula myth and reality).
- The practice and theory of interpretation (professional interpreters are invited to establish contacts with the Romanian Embassy, in order to get a grant). For translations we ask you to bring eligible (well-known) texts, chosen from national literatures. All the participants are asked to prepare themselves for the show-contest - " All Nations" - poetry, singing and playing music, national dancing - contest, stage acting.
N.B. Some of the courses and lectures on Brancusi's art will be delivered at the University of Targu Jiu, the town of his well known sculptural creations.
