Book on festivals published

Exploring Community Festivals and Event

Exploring Community Festivals and Event

A book was published with title “Exploring Community Festivals and Events” edited by Dr. Alan Clarke, Associate Professor at the Faculty of Business and Economics, and his colleague Allan Jepson.

Exploring Community Festivals and Events

Edited by Allan Jepson, Alan Clarke

The development of the festival and event industry has seen large scale growth and extensive government support as a result of objectives to enhance and project the image of place and leverage positive sponsorship and regeneration opportunities. As we move deeper into austerity measures prompted by economic recession, community festivals and events as a sacred or profane time of celebration can be considered even more important than ever before.

This book for the first time explores the role and importance of ‘community’, ‘culture’ and its impact through festivals and events. Split into two distinct sections, the first introduces key themes and concepts, contextualises local traditions and culture, and investigates how festivals and events can act as a catalyst for tourism and create a sense of community. It then questions the social and political nature of festivals and community events through examining their ownership. The second section focuses on communities themselves, seeking to examine and discuss key emerging themes in community event studies such as; the role of diaspora, imagined communities, pride and identity, history, producing and consuming space and place, authenticity, and multi-ethnic communities. Examples are drawn from Portugal, the Dominican Republic, the USA, Malaysia, Malta, Finland and Australia making this book truly international.

This significant volume will be valuable reading for students and academics across the fields of Event, Tourism and Hospitality studies as well as other social science disciplines.

Emotional intelligence as an important 21st century competence:

Which wolf do you feed?

24th IATEFL-HUNGARY CONFERENCE
3-4-5 October, 2014 Veszprém

“All learning has an emotional base”-said Plato. When learning has a positive outcome unconsciously we smile and feel satisfied or even proud. On the other hand negative outcome makes us sad, frustrated or even angry. To express and control our emotions is innate, but can it be learnt how to understand, interpret and respond to the miscellaneous impulses? You can have extremely high IQ and be an expert in your field but with whom and how would you share your feelings? What makes you happy? Why would you volunteer? What makes you perform better?
In the interactive plenary I am going to explain the concept of emotional intelligence and attempt to answer to these questions by introducing the results of some research that have been carried out recently. Moreover the secret of long and content life is revealed spiced with a little emotional “mirror drama”.
