University of Baghdad participates in a global conference in U.S about the effects of war on the cultural and artistic reality
University of Baghdad participated in the annual congress of the humanities and educational sciences held by Cornell university, U.S that deals with the effects of wars on theater reality. The participation of the university comes through the instructor ( Kawakib Talib al – Rubaie ) from the department of public relations at the presidency of the university of Baghdad with her research entitled “effects of war on the Iraqi and American theater: plays of Kazim Al-Omran and T.S Elliot as models”. The researcher has attempted to shed light on the war and its impact on the Iraqi and the American societies from the cultural and the social areas. The participants in the conference praised the points of views dealt with in this research that contributed in informing the academics and the artists from various world universities on the ability of the Iraqi playwright when he describes his society through art and displaying the suffering of the citizen who faces the devastating wars of the former regime. The researcher met Dr. Susan Darwin, head of the department of comparative literature at the university of California who expressed her readiness to open prospects for scientific and cultural cooperation with the university of Baghdad with the hope that that there will be other participations by Iraqi researchers in such conferences held by the university in the coming years. The conference included many participants from different world universities to discuss the impact of war on the literary and artistic culture and keep abreast with the new literary theories adopted in teaching literature.
