Updated programme for Telling Embodied Stories: please remember to register to the symposium

How are questions of girlhood, remembering, art and embodiment explored in different works by female artists? What kinds of stories about girlhood and (young) femininity are told in popular music, theatre, literature and dance? And how do these stories carry embodied meanings and memories about growing up as a girl?

For example these questions will be examined by artists and scholars in this symposium at the School of History, Culture and Art at the University of Turku. See the updated programme below.
