In partnership with the Hauts-de-France Region, the Université Picardie Jules Verne is inviting applications for a three-year fully funded PhD on "Transchannel projects in Anglo-European dynamics: mediatisation and territorialisation of cultural policies and (para)diplomacies" (2020-2023)

The objective of the study is to examine the impact of INTERREG Transchannel cultural projects on civic and cultural identities in England, by analysing how they have been publicised at the local, regional and national levels, and what influence they have had on the policies, practices and perceptions of the people involved (institutional or not, state and non-state, operators and participants). Over the last decades and after the British vote in favour of ‘Brexit’ in June 2016, it considers how INTERREG projects have contributed to the creation of a common cultural space – at what level(s) and on which issues – and to the emergence of new forms of democratic governance. One of the objectives of the research is to identify when and why cultural cooperation programmes facilitate a redistribution of powers, cultural transfers and transcultural initiatives, and with what impact.
