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.

Sheffield: A Poem

     by Poonam Ganglani

A Day in Sheffield

It's Monday morning, my alarm clocks scream
Its a sunny day in Sheffield.....Oh wait, that was a dream!
I reluctantly get up, have my sausages and tea
I've got quite used to the English breakfast you see!
Get ready for Uni, busy schedule today
Two classes plus a meeting with Pascal Mercier!
It's only 10 am so I guess I'll have time to do
my Lord Chamberlain reading and my Barthes assignment too!
Then I can relax and tune in to FM Station Hallam
Oh blimey, there's that book I need for class with McCallam!
I quickly get dressed, coat, boots and gloves
and brace myself for the long climb up the hill above!
Huffing & puffing, I make it to the IC
to grab a few books and a quick cup of coffee!
Time now for class, so I head to the Arts Tower
Catch the lift to the 7th floor-am right on the hour!
During class I think-Should I join tonight's pub crawl?
Naah, I think instead I'll take the tram and go to Meadow Hall!
Next stop-Student's Union, to decide which movie to see
and to buy those Give it a Go tickets for Chatsworth and Whitby!
I meet some friends for a snack- fish, chips and beers
It's the English speciality darling, so smile and say cheers!
It's evening now, so I head back home, down by the Moor
I stop by Poundland of course, to see what's in store!
By now it's freezing cold outside as I walk up to my house above
And thereabout ends my day in Sheffield-- so g'night then love!
