The second journey of studies of Research Society of PhD Candidates in Cultural History is based on the seminar “Cultural History / Circulation, reception, mediation” of the Graduate School of English, German and European Studies (EDEAGE), Sorbonne Nouvelle University.
Our first journey of studies had for theme “The emergence of the transnational cultural space” throughout the study of the local cases and the global phenomenon .
This year, during our second journey of studies, our topic of discussion will be the circulations and the representations under the angle of the gender relations and / or the cultural policies of the XXth century till today.
Indeed, we want to question the representations existing in the globalized societies during two workshop groups and by studying two different objects: the women’s movements and / or the cultural policies.
Workshop 1: Circulations and cultural policies
What are the stakes of the cultural policies in our globalized and interconnected society?
This workshop’s main purpose is to study the cultural dimension as the strategy of the international relations and of the cultural Diplomacy. We should also question the relations between the States, the International Organizations and the civil societies into the culture’s circulations:
• How to answer the needs of the contemporary cultural movements;
• What is the place of the culture in the politics of modern States;
• How the cultural policies are interacting on the external representations/ images of the States and on the relations between the States and the public organizations;
• What is the place of the cultural organizations in the modern society of communication?
There is a lot of ways to think about those statements, which this workshop group invites us to develop. The exclusion phenomenon and the cultural movements of the minorities could be an object of the particular attention.
We invite you to take a look at the actuality of research to examine the links between the dialogue through the disciplines and the cultural spaces. We will welcome the theoretical and methodological contributions and the study of the practical cases national or international in the different area such as politics, education, actions and cultural mediations, cultural economics…
Workshop 2: Women in action and circulations
The second part of our Workshop invites you to explore feminine and feminist groups and movements on local, national and transnational levels. This round table sets up different approaches: historical analysis, observation of Cultural transfers, representations and speeches’ studies, work on interactions between academic and associative spheres. The topic of discussion will consist of :
• The production and the reception of Femininity and Masculinity norms by these organizations ;
• The circulation of knowledge, researches and concepts (ex : Gender, Feminism, etc.) produced or appropriated by these groups ;
• The networking and the organization models of those groups which may bring new working methods and best practices;
• These organizations’ representatively on the political sphere and in civil society.
We will welcome papers that make a connection between cultural politics and Women movements, through the activist art expression (DAPHNE program, festivals, social projects, local initiatives, etc.).
Key words: circulations, reception, cultural policy, gender, women, feminism, movements, network, transfers…
