29 September: Cultural infrastructure(s): The practice of knowledge
Time and place: 13.00-18.00 (followed by refreshments), building Kopparhammaren 7, floor 3, Campus Norrköping
The concept of infrastructure is used widely to discuss various forms of underlying resource provision in a range of domains. Although often applied to particular spaces, built objects and technical systems, there is increasing emphasis on analysis and advocacy of ‘soft’ as well as ‘hard’ infrastructure. Indeed, this distinction tends to dissolve when it is applied to the many ways in which situated, networked knowledge reflexively conditions and is realised in practice. In the domain of what we call cultural infrastructure, it is the knowledge embedded and emergent in cultural production and consumption that is vital to many areas of research relating to socio-cultural policy, cultural institution building, cultural practices, and so on. This Symposium, the latest in the long-established collaboration between Western Sydney University’s Institute for Culture and Society (ICS) and its host, Linköping University’s TemaQ, brings researchers from Australia and Sweden together to exchange knowledge and ideas addressing the dynamic relationships between cultural infrastructure, knowledge regimes, communities of practice, and the politics of cultural provision.
Seminar in collaboration with Institute for Culture and Society, Western Sydney University.
