Webinar: Navigating race and racism in the cultural sector

The IMISCOE Anti-Racism Working Group (ARWG) webinar series continues thanks to the DIVCULT Standing Committee!

Guest Speakers 

Racial inequalities operate in the cultural sector at different levels and in multiple ways. They concern the access to the consumption, the production and the management of culture, and they intersect with other processes of discrimination and exclusion, such as those based on social class, gender, ethnicity, and religion. They affect the ways in which migrants are represented and are able to represent themselves, thus reinforcing cultural hegemonies and structural barriers that prevent migrants’ meaningful participation in artistic and cultural life. Racial inequalities are also reflected in broader discourses, policies, curatorial and aesthetic decisions. The cultural sector, from the arts to heritage, may then become a space for the (re)production of inequalities. However, it may also become a space of resistance to inequalities, challenging the system at place.

The focus of the discussion will be on navigating racial inequalities and related aspects, through bringing together a varied set of research experiences, focused on different cultural domains and practices, and mobilising varied theoretical and methodological approaches. The guest speakers will make introductory remarks, followed by exchanges with the audience moderated by the chair of the webinar Carolina Triana Cuellar (University of Sussex). In order to join, we ask you to register first so we can have an approximate idea of how many people will join us: 

 

The event will be hybrid, online via Cisco Webex (password: 1234), and with some participants intervening from Malmö University!
