———————-
The School of Culture and Creative Arts at the University of Glasgow is delighted to be hosting a two-day international conference on transnational and translocal partnerships, collaborations and policies between European museums, libraries & public cultural institutions around the themes of cultural heritage for the arts and sciences, migration, cultural dialogue, and ICTs. Papers are related to real-life case studies, collaboration models and research on cultural memory, identity and cultural policies.

How can museums define innovative practices, spaces and policies that reflect the challenges of building an inclusive Europe in an age of migrations? What are the experiences and effects of collaboration, partnerships and networks around the core activities of archiving, preserving, displaying history and artefacts, and the associated categories of cultural value and identity? Is it possible to allow more flexible and heterogenic connections of public cultural institutions within the European/Mediterranean space? How are museums, libraries and public cultural institutions presenting themselves and interacting with multicultural audiences? What guidelines and policies could be suggested to support networking of public cultural institutions?

An exciting program has been arranged, with speakers from the Australian National Maritime Museum; British Library; Cité nationale de l’histoire de l’immigration; Council of Europe (Diversity and Intercultural Dialogue division, DG II); European Cultural Foundation; Europeana; Foundation for the History of Technology, The Netherlands; Génériques; Glasgow Museums; Glasgow Refugee Asylum and Migration Network; Harvard University; London South Bank University; Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle; Museum of the Resistance, Deportation, War, Rights and Freedom (Turin); Natural History Museum, London; Politecnico di Milano; Science Museum, London; Surrey City Council; University of East Anglia; University of Glasgow; University of Manchester; University of Naples; ZKM Media Museum and more.
