This project brings together scholars from three continents wishing to pursue original, interdisciplinary research focused on the global reach of feminist writing and women’s movements. While the transformation of women’s social status is one of the most significant developments of the post-war period, little is known about the precise ways in which women’s rights campaigners across different national and cultural settings communicated with one another, read and translated each other’s texts, and locally re-contextualised them. Historical findings and new theoretical approaches will be discussed at three international workshops, and disseminated through academic publications and a series of web resources, including an interactive historical map and databases.

Havana Glasgow Film Festival is the brainchild of Eirene Houston, a screenwriter and director, who has been travelling and working in Havana for almost 20 years. She will tell you there are a lot more similarities between the city and her home in Glasgow than you may first think. Eirene and Glasgow Ciy Council believe that the Havana Glasgow Film Festival is a great way to promote the twin city relationship and to give people from Glasgow and beyond the opportunity to celebrate and learn more about Cuban Cinema and see films which are not easily available.

As well as private tours at a time that suits you, we offer three weekly tours: Glasgow’s Music Mile From Glasgow Royal Concert Hall to King Tut’s, via Glasgow School of Art, Glasgow’s Music Mile tour is a whistle-stop guide around the city centre, an area teeming with music venues past and present. Hear tales from the heyday of the late, lamented Apollo; check out the home of Celtic Connections and marvel at the many successful bands that started out at King Tut’s. Finishing at the famous venue, this tour includes the opportunity to literally follow in the early footsteps of bands like Oasis, Blur and the Manic Street Preachers. You will have the chance to stand under the lights at King Tut’s and grab a selfie on the stage that helped launch so many great acts. The Glasgow’s Music Mile tour is a great way to see what makes Glasgow’s music scene tick.
