September 23-24, 2021
Erasmus University Rotterdam
Deadline (registration): September 10, 2021
Erasmus Research Centre of Media, Communication and Culture (ERMeCC) will host a conference that highlights the efforts of the H2020 research project “INVENT - European Inventory of Societal Values of Culture as a Basis for Inclusive Cultural Policies in the Globalizing World”. INVENT examines the cultural and social preconditions required to realize the goals of the New EU Agenda for Culture: the preservation and improvement of the European project, advancing the well-being of European citizens, and fostering inclusiveness, tolerance, and social cohesion.
INVENT investigates how European citizens perceive and engage with culture and how this varies for different (e.g., demographic, socio-economic, ethnic, religious) groups of people in European societies. It addresses how processes of globalization, European integration, migration, social inequalities, and digitalization affect (perceptions and experiences of) everyday life, everyday culture, and cultural participation.
Researchers, cultural stakeholders, policymakers, and students who are interested in these issues are cordially invited to participate.
The conference program on Thursday, September 23 will feature in-person presentations and discussions at Erasmus University Rotterdam that will be live-streamed for those who prefer to participate online. On Friday September 24, the conference program will be fully online.
