About this product
- Description17 September 2011 will mark 10 years exactly since the formal opening of the Monash University Prato Centre, Monash Universitys teaching and research hub in Europe. The Centre is located in the heart of Tuscany and the dynamic city of Prato in a landmark eighteenth-century mansion, the Palazzo Vaj. Reflecting the collaborative ethos that made possible the Centres establishment, this distinctive presentation volume rich in images, is the result of collaboration between writer and editor Cynthia Troup, and photomedia artist Jo-Anne Duggan, the Centres first Artist in Residence. A Site of Convergence draws attention to the spaces of the Palazzo Vaj as the context for exhilarating experiences of encounter with the city and people of Prato, and with researchers and experts, teachers and students, art and artists from around the world. Examples of such experiences come to life in verbal snapshots of Centre history, and from Centre visitors. Together these reflections highlight the Centres vitality as place where kwledge for a globalised twenty-first century is shared and deepened across generations, a wide spectrum of disciplines and areas of research.
