Newsletter #10 (January 2021)

A (belated) Happy New Year to everyone – may it end more kindly than it began.

Things to look forward to this year include:

  • a steady stream of researchers moving, at slightly different speeds, towards the finish line (e.g. Ivy, Felix, Sue, Helen, and Huran)
  • a new series of LANTERN alumni/associate talks (see below)
  • further work developing the idea of a resource (and associated training workshops) for “Publishing during and from/after a doctorate” … watch this space
  • revised project proposals to be taken through ethical approval (eg Xian and Jing).

Alumni/Associate Talks (as confirmed so far, who knows what will happen in March)

  • Fri 15th January, 10.00/10.15 … Magdalena De Stefani
  • Fri 22nd January, 10.00/10.15 … Dalal Al Abassi
  • Fri 29th January, 10.00/10.15 … Huran Mirillo
  • Fri 5th February, 12.00/12.15 … Duygu Candarli
  • Fri 12th February, 12.00/12.15 … Fida Sahar
  • Fri 19th February, 12.00/12.15 … Natasha Tsantila
  • Fri 26th February, 12.00/12.15 … Ivy Taslima

This flow of talks, by an mixture of alumni, current students, and research associates, is very pleasing. LANTERN has indeed woken up after is slumber of 2019.


Everyone can post …. so please share any news items, details of upcoming calls for papers, chapters articles etc, conference announcements, new books published, not forgetting your work-in-progress, your news of successes (re employment, publishing, submissions, vivas, etc).


One new type of posting this year is the {CONCEPTUALISING} strand, with posts already up regarding:

  • intercultural musicking
  • interthinking and collaboration
  • intercultural personhood (imminent)

I wonder what the February Newsletter #11 will bring ….
