IEREST Module 1 - Exploring narrative in intercultural mobility contexts

The aim of this activity is to explore in depth narratives in the context of intercultural mobility, and more specifically, of study-abroad experiences. In this activity, students explore examples of narratives and confront the challenges and questions surrounding them within their own (future, present or past) Erasmus mobility perspective.

IEREST Module 1 - Anti-discrimination study circle

This activity encourages students to reflect on discrimination and how it can touch upon everyone through implicit or explicit processes. In this activity students first discuss their own experiences of discriminatory practices in their own environment and elsewhere. Then, through the series of tasks, they are gradually guided to analyse discourses of discrimination in the media (TV news and the Internet) by deconstructing images of otherness, which are often conveyed by specific language choices. The ultimate objective is to enable students to apply what has been presented and discussed within the study circle of the class to their own explorations of discriminatory events/texts/images in their own lives and communities, and in the context of their future study abroad.

IEREST Module 1 - Meeting others abroad

The activity is related to the goal of reflecting on what it means to engage with others during a stay abroad. It helps students refrain from creating categories of ‘desirable’ and ‘undesirable’ others, reflecting on the idea that all people are potentially interesting and worth meeting. The activity also aims at encouraging students to engage with other mobile students, for instance by having former mobile students share experiences with new mobile students.

IEREST Module 1 - Perceptions of self and other

This activity invites the students to explore the concept of ‘multiple identities’ and to consider how it is related to intercultural communication. This concept is considered fundamental in view of an experience abroad. In addition, terms such as ‘co-constructed’, ‘negotiated’, ‘ascribed’, ‘contested’ identities will be introduced at the beginning of the activity and then practised in the four tasks, in order to provide the students with the appropriate language to articulate the concepts introduced. It will be in the light of these concepts that other more common terms are reconsidered, namely those of ‘stereotype’, ‘prejudice’, ‘essentialism’, and ‘ethnocentrism’.

IEREST Module 2 - 24h Erasmus life

This activity is designed to encourage students to reflect on their actual Erasmus experiences along four complementary themes: (1) the emotional dimension of living abroad; (2) their social contacts within the Erasmus community as well as with local students/people; (3) the academic life in the host institution; and (4) their language experiences.

IEREST Module 2 - Intercultural geography

This activity is designed to help students reflect on how their host environment - the place or region, its neighbourhoods, the university, etc. - has been shaped by its history and culture(s), by the activities and interactions of the communities who live there and by the way they occupy and use the spaces available to them. The tasks within the activity are intended to encourage students to compare their own experience and perception of the host environment with those of others, namely those of both other students and more permanent residents.

IEREST Module 2- Experiencing (interculturality through) volunteering

This activity offers Erasmus students the opportunity to obtain intercultural experience in a volunteering organisation in the host society. The students engage in intercultural dialogue with the local population and develop communication capabilities in potentially multiple languages and contexts. Also, volunteering increases social and job skills, which may considerably enhance students’ employability. Thus students gain experience of intercultural communication in the workplace. This activity engages Erasmus students in critical intercultural reflection through journal writing and practical fieldwork in an organisation.

IEREST Module 3 - Bringing interculturality back home

This activity responds to the needs of students returning from study abroad to reflect on their experiences and share these with others, as well as to help future mobile students. Here, Erasmus students are asked to consider how they translate their experience (intercultural or otherwise) into self-representation, and how they can help future Erasmus exchange students to reflect on their pre-departure expectations.

IEREST Module 3 - One, two, many… Erasmus experiences

This activity invites students to look back critically on how they talk about their Erasmus experience with other people once they have returned home. As other narrators, students will tend to construct different narratives for different audiences. This does not imply, however, that one ‘version’ of an episode is more or less ‘true’ than another.

IEREST Module 3 - Student mobility beyond the academy

The purpose of this activity is to have students address the question “What have I got from my Erasmus experience that is not strictly related to my academic career?”. Specifically, this breaks down into two broad foci. The first two tasks concern the theme of citizenship, and ask students to reflect on how they may view themselves as global citizens as a result of their study abroad, and on what European citizenship may mean to them. The second theme revolves around how mobility is perceived in the professional world, what skills the students have acquired from the Erasmus experience, and how they can communicate those gains to future employers.

Redes sociales, ¿redes de seguridad? Las comunidades y Internet en las experiencias de la emigración

Este documental, creado como parte de un proyecto estudiantil de la Universidad de Leeds, indaga sobre el papel de las comunidades y la tecnologia en la experiencia de la emigración. Investiga estos temas a través de extractos de entrevistas con tres emigrados espanoles que viven en la ciudad de Leeds, Inglaterra. Compara estas narrativas con extractos de publicaciones en varias redes sociales y comunidades digitales escritas por emigrantes españoles, para ver las interacciones entre las comunidades virtuales y las narrativas individuales. Utiliza elementos del modo ‘participativo’ y del ‘reflexivo’ de Nichols, tratando los temas de los métodos de investigación del estudiante y del proyecto OpenLIVES. El documental fue producido como parte de la asignatura "Discovering Spanish Voices Abroad in a Digital World (OpenLIVES)", de la Universidad de Leeds.

Interview to Spanish Poets Inma Pelegrín and Katy Parra

Interview in Spanish: Award-winning Spanish Poets Inma Pelegrín and Katy Parra are interviewed at the University of Leeds by Dr Diana Cullell, Lecturer at the University of Liverpool (Iberian and Latin American Studies). During the interview Inma Pelegrín and Katy talk about the current state of poetic production in Spain, the connections with political changes in Spain, socially committed poetry, cultural policy, accessibility of poetry, meaning in poetry and language learning and poetry. They also talk about their own poetry and their influences. The interview took place on the 3 February 2015. Inma Pelegrín is the winner of the prestigious literary awards “Premio Hispanoamericano de Poesía Juan Ramón Jiménez 2012” and “Premio Internacional de Poesía Gerardo Diego 2007”. Inma's poetry is fresh and direct yet distinctively sublime. She is a poet of immense emotional intelligence and linguistic talent, as she can arouse the most nuanced feelings in the reader by using familiar and colloquial language, which she seamlessly transforms into poetic gold. Her latest work includes Universo improbable (2009) Trapos sucios (2008), Óxido (2008) and Cuestión de horas (2012) Katy Parra is a literary activist and poet who has published extensively since 1997. In 2008 she won the International Poetry Award dedicated to Miguel Hernández. Her poetry sits comfortably along those unique voices in Spanish poetry who have managed to put the most exquisite formal poetic demands at the service of clarity, subtle irony and unexpected eroticism. Katy is the author of Coma Idílico (2008), Por si los pájaros (2008) and La manzana o la vida (2013). Inma Pelegrín and Katy Parra visited the University of Leeds to participate in the International Writers at Leeds event held on the 3rd February 2015 at Leeds Central Library. The event "Exploring the Feminine and the Divine" also featured poets Siobhan Mac Mahon and Hannah Stone, guitarist Sabrina Piggot and Antonio Martínez-Arboleda (University of Leeds- Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies) as literary editor and translator.
