[Book cover] Lintas Budaya: Anak Muda Memandang Perbedaan

Photobucket
Cover designer & Illustrator: Felkiza Vinanda

"Buku ini merupakan kumpulan pengalaman dan refleksi orisinil mahasiswa semester pertama di Sastra Inggris, UK Petra, tentang kesalahpahaman antar budaya. Mahasiswa-mahasiswa baru ini relatif belum terlalu ‘terkontaminasi’ dengan segala teori dan ajaran budaya yang canggih-canggih dan politically correct. Itulah kenapa mungkin ada yang agak politically incorrect. Ada yang sensitif. Ada yang nyerempet-nyerempet bahaya. Namun demikian ada beberapa keuntungan langsung dari membaca pengalaman mereka. Pengalaman dan refleksi mereka tergolong segar dan tanpa sensor diri yang berlebihan. Ini sendiri sudah menjanjikan pengalaman membaca yang kaya-rasa. Membaca cerita-cerita mereka seperti mengunyah permen nano-nano, bahkan lebih. Jika nano-nano hanya menghadirkan sensasi manis, asam, dan asin, cerita-cerita dalam buku ini mampu menghadirkan rasa pahit juga. Dengan sendirinya buku ini cocok untuk siapa saja yang mempunyai rasa dan perasaan."

Petra Little Theatre is having performances next week.
It's a one-act comedy called "The Spy Who Came In For The Phone" by Alan Richardson.
In this play, you'll find 60s fashion, two guns, some kung-fu, and the most ANNOYING telephone's ringing in the whole world.
Curious?
Book a seat and enjoy the show! ;)

"In the face of ever-increasing globalization, changes have penetrated almost every walk of life, including language. This fact has encouraged the English Department of Petra Christian University, Surabaya to organize a national conference under the theme of “Language in the Online and Offline World 3: the Transformation” to address contemporary language issues in the fields of creative industries, education business, and business communication. We expect that this will enhance the quality and effectiveness of language use in academic and professional settings in our country. This seminar will bring together students, teachers, lecturers, scholars, and experts of any field using language from all over Indonesia to discuss, reflect on and develop their perspectives as well as offer many opportunities for professional contact and development."
