New intercultural research portal launched in Vienna on women and taboo

The Forschungsplattform Elfriede Jelinek: Texte – Kontexte – Rezeption at the University of Vienna just launched the research portal TABU: Bruch. Überschreitungen von Künstlerinnen. The project brings together more than 60 international researchers and artists on topics related to women and taboo in an intercultural context. In addition to several events held in Vienna, more than 50 contributions will be published online between November 2013 and April 2014. In order to explore new ways of academic interaction, these contributions range from conventional academic articles to essays, chats, e-mail and video conversations and interviews. Watch out for my contribution on Elfriede Jelinek and censorship in different parts of the world in spring.
