This blog was created as part of the Erasmus Mundus Crossways in Cultural Narratives Masters programme, which is the only one of the EU approved and funded Erasmus Mundus Masters programmes to specialise in traditional humanities with a modern languages background. The Crossways Consortium comprises 6 top-class European universities.

For further information, please check the programme's official website and the universities' websites on the Useful Links section on the left. If you wish to have a specific question answered, please click on Email here and submit your query.

Mundus students, here you will find regular posts regarding the universities of the consortium, tips, activities, events, pictures, etc. Apart from checking it regularly to keep yourself up to date, a good way to use the blog is through the search device. We already have a significant amount of information on some universities of the consortium, so if you want to find information on a specific city, type its name in the search field (top left). You will then see all posts related to that specific city (because each post title contains the city's name in it). You can also type "General" in order to find information concerning everybody.

Next passage to India

I am not wishing you a happy new year, as 2007 will be really great only if you really want it to be great! Margot Lauwers (the immoderate moderator of this blog) has spent the whole day with me setting up two websites which are now going to work efficiently and at anytime of day or night (at last) : these are the sites of the English Dpt (http://english.perpi.free.fr/ ) and that of the postgraduate program "Hétérologies" (http://heterologies.free.fr/ ). You will find online courses, documents and all sorts of useful info. up there.

I will be away in India from Jan. 8th to 17th 2007 and in Bergamo from Jan. 28th to Feb. 3rd when we have a General Assembly Meeting of the Mundus programme (do not forget to have a look from time to time at the official website : http://www.mastermundushumanities.com/ and recommend it for your foreign (non EU) friends who might be eligible to the generous scholarship (deadline is January 15th) : 21000 euros a year!

Last but not least, 2 visiting professors will come to Perpignan in February : One, from Agadir will talk on Fitzgerald (The Great Gatsby) and the poetry of the Italian writer Ungaretti ; the other, Sylvia Valdès, from Buenos Aires, a specialist in surrealist architecture and art history, will spend a whole month with us and has many mad projects in mind and in which you may participate. Be ready and do not miss them!

Enfin, puisque l'actualité est tout à fait dans l'inactualité, je vous laisse découvrir une page imprimée il y a fort longtemps avec deux dessins inédits de Salvador Dali qui seront au centre de ma publication du printemps : Les Delits de Dali, une édition des écrits poétiques de l'écrivain traduits du catalan, de l'espagnol, de l'anglais et parfois même du français! Alors n'oubliez pas : l'amour et la mémoire sont incompatibles. En 2007, faites lui confiance : Aimez, ne vous en souvenez pas!

To those of you who wouldn't know (but they will not be many 'cause this information usually circulates correctly lol), holidays start on Friday December, 23th, after the last lessons.
But since none of us, Master Students, have lessons on Friday, our holidays start Thursday at noon... :-p

Here's a picture of what the Syndikat of Heterological Systems does in the wee hours ...

Have the nicest Christmas and the happiest New Year and come back full of energy.
Check out the blog regurlarly, new information may be posted during the holidays... Do not hesitate to post messages yourself in reaction to the upcoming seminars or anything that strikes you in a heterological manner!
This blog is yours!
