ICCPR 2018 will take place in Tallinn, Estonia August 21-25. The conference will be hosted by Tallinn University. All information about the conference can be found here: http://iccpr2018.tlu.ee/
The theme of ICCPR 2018 is “The Cultural Governance of Global Flows: Past and Future”.
The theme refers to the emergence of complex global flows that present contemporary societies with novel challenges and have high relevance for shaping but also understanding cultural policy in the making worldwide. These include forced as well as unforced migrations; new global divisions in cultural labour; cultural tourism; novel forms of content distribution; emergent international networks and platforms enabling cultural exchange; global trade with (big) data on cultural practices; and attempts of reimagining and re-evaluating shared values, to name some. The conference expects to address not only the present situation and future strategies but invites investigations into the archaeologies and histories of contemporary flows and into past ways of addressing related challenges with cultural policies in different regions of the world. It puts a special emphasis on the experiences in Eastern Europe and other transitional societies.
