This lecture was given within the framework of the Artists in Residence and Writer in Residence programmes, aimed at exploring the intersections between society and the arts through exhibitions, lectures and discussions. As an initiative of the Centre for the Humanities and Treaty of Utrecht, the programmes revolve around the theme of the social responsibility and deals with ways in which cosmopolitan ideas and communities are inscribed and dealt with in literature, visual arts, performance and film. They engage with the emerging notions of world music, visual arts and literature, post-national filmmaking or multicultural writing and invite cultural audiences to reflect on their own responsibilities in a g-local setting.
