Thanks to support from our funder, the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), our host organizations – the Universities of Exeter and Vilnius, Poltimore House in Exeter and the Cinema Pasaka in Vilnius – and our colleagues at the British Centre for Literary Translation at the University of East Anglia, we will host three seminars on sensitive aspects of motherhood and parenting which will be completely free and open to the public.
