Seminar Series, March-May 2009: 'Negotiated Identities, Histories and Public Cultures'

Venues: Irish Film Institute and Alliance Française

CTMP invites you to a series of six public conversations exploring questions of participatory media, public memory, cultural identity, heritage and difference. The presentations unpack the ways in which constructions of place, space and cultural heritage are shaped by both individual and collective memories that are multilayered and contested; how cross-cultural translation is underpinned by asymmetrical relations of power; how public spaces mobilise the potential for communal empowerment, simultaneous with technologies of control and regulation; and the role that the cultural and creative industries play in conserving or re-imagining past, present and future understandings of cultural identity and belonging.
