Questioning traditional boundaries of culture
The Understanding Everyday Participation – Articulating Cultural Values project calls into question the traditional boundaries of ‘culture’ and exposes the role these play in the making of economic, social and geographical inequalities.
Its research disputes the methodological nationalism that dominates understandings of cultural participation and demands a radical re-appraisal of the meanings and stakes attached to participation and ‘cultural value’.
This closing project conference asks how we might re-think the field of participation studies, both within and across disciplinary boundaries, including its articulations with policy.
