Remapping the Arts, Heritage, and Cultural Production: Between Policies and Practices in East and Southeast Asian Cities

April 4, 2017

Call for papers and/or posters

fromdu 16 August 2017 toau 17 August 2017

Organized by:Organisé par :
Asia Research Institute, National University of Singapore, Singapore

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : Singapore

Description :
For Zukin (1982, 1987, 1995) culture has been central to the development of the new ‘symbolic’ or ‘creative’ economy, but she also cautions against its appropriation for urban redevelopment that can lead displacement of local communities. Castells (2010), on the other hand, suggests that cultural materials, including digital media, facilitate social change, especially in relation to social movements, because they enable social actors to redefine their subjectivities and transform the social structure. While local and regional governments are striving towards the ‘rejuvenation’ of urban spaces as a form of city branding, citizens and artists alike are seeking ways to maintain the viability of local arts and culture along with (in)tangible heritage. In many Asian cities, heritage preservation has played an important role in the democratisation of urban spaces and community building. Tensions between different interest groups have been unavoidable but mutual ground i
s needed for feasible policies and practices to construct inclusive and socially just urban spaces.

With the rise of local governance, and changing state-society relationships, we believe that the full potential of arts, heritage, and cultural production in the social transformation and civic participation has not yet been fully acknowledged. Given differences in urban governance, planning and civic participation in East and Southeast Asia, more nuanced research is needed to identify what kind of cultural policies and creative practices could be developed and how they might provide innovative approaches beyond the Western paradigms of ‘creative’ or ‘cultural’ cities, and gentrification. Similarly, Douglass (2015) has raised policy questions about how to strengthen civic engagement, belonging and community building in cities through the cultivation of civic participation. Innovative forms of civic participation resonate with the ‘worlding practices’ defined by Ong (2011:4) as ‘projects that attempt to establish or break established horizons of urban standards i
n and beyond a particular city’. The purpose of this multidisciplinary conference is thus to explore both government-led cultural policies and the organically emerging artistic and creative practices aimed at the empowerment of local communities and neighborhoods in contemporary East and Southeast Asian cities.

We invite the submission of papers from early career and established scholars, policy makers, activists, and creative practitioners to explore the role of arts, culture, and heritage in developing more progressive urban societies in East and Southeast Asia cities. We encourage applicants to consider empirical case studies and theories within comparative contexts and to extrapolate policy options for other regions apart from the East and Southeast Asia that explore innovative ways to build co-operation between varied social groups, institutions, and local governance. Questions that will guide the conference proceedings speak to integrated themes across disciplinary and geographical boundaries and include: Continue reading…


Migration, Adaptation and Memory: 6th International Interdisciplinary Memory Conference

Call for papers and/or posters

fromdu 21 September 2017 toau 22 September 2017

Organized by:Organisé par :
University of Gdańsk, McGill University, InMind Support, Poland, Canada

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : Gdańsk, Poland

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description :
The previous editions of the Memory series conferences, which have brought together more than five hundred scholars from around the world, have addressed the relationship between memory and solidarity (“Solidarity, Memory and Identity”, 2012), memory and dreams (“Dreams, Phantasms and Memories”, 2013), memory and forgetting (“Memory: Forgetting and Creating”, 2014), memory and nostalgia (“Memory, Melancholy and Nostalgia”, 2015), and trauma and recovery (“Memory, Trauma and Recovery”, 2016).

In 2017, we turn our attention to processes that are integral to human experience: migration, adaptation, and memory. We are interested in all aspects of migration and adaptation experience, in their individual and collective dimensions, in the past and in the present-day world. We would like to examine the role of memory, the processes of migrating and adapting to various dynamic life circumstances, across time, space, culture, language, and discipline.

Therefore, we strive to represent and discuss the crossroads of migration, adaptation, and memory in their multiple representations: psychological, social, historical, cultural, philosophical, religious, neurological, organizational, methodological, economic, political, and many others. As usual, we will also devote considerable attention to how these phenomena appear and transform in artistic practices: literature, film, theatre, and visual arts. This is why we invite researchers representing various academic disciplines: anthropology, history, psychiatry, psychology, psychoanalysis, sociology, politics, philosophy, economics, law, history of literature, theatre studies, film studies, design, project management, memory studies, migration studies, consciousness studies, dream studies, gender studies, postcolonial studies, medical sciences, cognitive sciences, and urban studies, to name a few.

Different forms of presentations are encouraged, including case studies, theoretical inquiries, personal reflections, problem-oriented arguments, comparative analyses, and creative expressions.

We will be happy to hear from experienced scholars and young academics, doctoral and graduate students, as well as professionals from various disciplines. We also invite all persons interested in participating in the conference as listeners, without the obligation to give a presentation. Continue reading…


Museums as a place for knowledge production and organization

Call for papers and/or posters

06 June 2017

Organized by:Organisé par :
Institute for Art History and Museology of the University of Neuchâtel in collaboration with the Maison Borel Foundation, Switzerland

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : Neuchâtel, Switzerland

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description :
Open to: PhD students in humanities
Dates: June 6, 2017, University of Neuchâtel and Maison Borel Foundation,
Deadline: April 7, 2017

Every year since 2012, this Symposium is organized by the Institute for Art History and Museology of the University of Neuchâtel in collaboration with the Maison Borel Foundation. The 2017 edition is dedicated to Museums as a place for knowledge production and organization.

The guest scholar, Dominique Poulot, is professor at the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne; as a specialist in heritage and museums, his work constitutes a landmark on institutional history of museums. A debate format guided by professor Poulot, is proposed to foster an open discussion between researchers and participants.

Researchers are invited to reflect on the subject of Museums as a place for knowledge production and organization, following Dominique Poulot’s concern: “Any question about knowledge in today’s museums could be framed in these terms: How can we re-enchant the knowledge in museum objects?”.

Originally, museums and their scientific fields were closely tied. Over the years this relationship has gradually faded away. Charles W. Haxthausen thus speaks of two Art Histories, one at the museum, the other at the academy: « with their different audiences, different values, different conceptions of scholarship and, in some cases, mutual suspicion of each other’s professional practices » (The two Art Histories, 2002). The proposition holds true for other disciplines such as ethnography, which is treated in the book Academic Anthropology and the Museum (2001). What is the situation today, fifteen years after these reflections? Continue reading…


The evolution of the museum

Call for papers and/or posters

fromdu 13 July 2017 toau 14 July 2017

Organized by:Organisé par :
Universal Histories and Universal Museums team, United Kingdom

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : London, United Kingdom

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description :
Museums are emergent entities – and the evolution of a museum is dependent on a number of factors, including: changes in collecting and disposal practices, redisplays and the legacy of temporary exhibitions. New pedagogical perspectives relating to new questions or ideological trends, either in museology or in the disciplines represented in the collections, are also influential.

This workshop will focus on selected case studies to analyse the impact of these changes on methodological issues relating to universal histories and universal museums. In particular, the evolution of the museum will be discussed in relation to the impact of temporary exhibitions and the circulation of knowledge in the public sphere. The workshop will explore how social knowledge practices influence the structuring of institutional knowledge, and the emergence of new disciplines.

The workshop will bring together researchers from ethnography, history of science, and museum history, to explore the evolution of museums, mainly – but not only – in France and the UK. The workshop will also contain a session with the objects studied in the Universal Histories and Universal Museums project. We invite papers and posters exploring the agencies and reception of these two institutions and their collections. Contributions might consider, but need not be confined to, the following themes:

– History and/or comparison of the science and art collections in the South Kensington Museum, and the foundation of the Science Museum
– History of ethnographic collections in Paris (and direct comparisons with other cities and particularly with London) and of the first Musée d’Ethnographie du Trocadéro
– The impact of temporary exhibitions and universal exhibitions on the creation and development of museum collections.

Important information:

Papers – abstract: 300 words (30 minutes papers)
Poster presentations – abstract: 300 words

Deadline for both abstracts: 21st April 2017.
