CFP/Symposium - The New Museum Paradigm: Shifting Representations of Empire at Museums and Art Galleries in the UK
Québec City, Quebec, October 24 – 27, 2019
Celebrating a hundred years of Peace and international order would require a counterfactual history, one with a certain urgency. It is in that spirit that this interdisciplinary conference, Other 1919s: The Problem of Sovereignty in a Global Context, is being convened. Sovereignty has been at the heart of major twentieth- and twenty-first century political, economic, cultural, and environmental matters of concern.
This international conference is co-organised by the Basque Institute Etxepare and the University of Edinburgh.
Its aims are to exchange knowledge and promote collaboration between academics and professionals working on minority-language media.
The conference will be in English.
