Seminar “Studying the Arts in Society. New Developments in Research and Training”

Presentation :

“This workshop investigates the consequences of these developments and the opportunities they provide. It has three main aims: (1) to explore a variety of approaches, in research and teaching, of the functioning of the arts in society today; (2) to provide a platform for cross-pollination between the department of Arts, Culture and Media at the University of Groningen and participating departments of Istanbul universities regarding both research and education and (3) thus, to explore the basis for structural cooperation between our universities in research, education, staff exchange and student exchange.

The presentations will deal with the development of new and promising approaches within distinct fields of interest, namely (1) Art policy and management, (2) Art education, among others from a cognitive perspective, and (3) Ethical and ideological issues in both artworks and art criticism.

Conference “Space and Culture” / Univ. Kadir Has / September 8-10th 2011

The Sixth International Cultural Studies Conference, Space and Culture 2011, will take place on the 8th to the 11th of September 2011 in İstanbul.

The 6th Cultural Studies Conference on “Space and Culture” jointly organized by Turkish Cultural Studies Association and Kadir Has University will be held on 8-10 September 2011 in Istanbul, Turkey. The purpose of the conference is to question existing paradigms in topics that bring together the concepts of ‘culture’ and ‘space,’ to present critical and analytical studies in these themes, and to explore new theoretical and methodological approaches in cultural studies with inter- and multi- disciplinary perspectives. The international cultural studies conferences that are organized every two years by this association have made significant contributions to cultural studies and brought together scholars who work in this area. Since the first meeting in Kemer, Antalya (2001), the Conferences have been organized, jointly, with 100. Yıl University in Van (2003), with Koç University in İstanbul (2005), with Işık University in Şile (2007), and with Karaelmas University in Zonguldak (2009).

Abstracts are invited on the following sub-themes related to Turkish cultures, cultures of Turkey, and cultures of Turks, whether they are located in or outside Turkey. The conference is open to a variety of approaches and themes as long as they deal with culture and space, and are pertinent to the central focus of the conference.
