Writing for Intercultural Empathy and Understanding

The National University of Ireland Maynooth (NUI Maynooth) Writing Centre, in collaboration with the NUI Maynooth Library, the Edward M Kennedy Institute at NUI Maynooth, and sectoral partners, invite you to a symposium on the topic
Writing for Intercultural Empathy and Understanding

9.30  a.m. – 1.00 p.m.
Renehan Hall, South Campus, NUI Maynooth, Co Kildare, Ireland
The hashtag for this event is #WIEU

The symposium has three key purposes:
  • to provide those who participate in the event with the opportunity to discuss how writing can contribute to greater intercultural understanding and empathy;
  • to explore practical instances where this has happened;
  •  to consider how best to scaffold further opportunities for this to occur.
This is a free event but booking is essential.
