9th Mid Term Conference of the RN-Sociology of the Arts

  • Hilary Ramsden (Speaker)

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in conference


The general topic of this Conference focuses on arts and creativity, questioning
the processes through which in an increasingly global, open, different and multicultural world artistic creativity is (re)defined, fostered, evaluated and asserted. Focusing the debate on the relationship between arts and plural societies, on the one side, and on the place and statute attributed to art by the new rhetoric of the creative agenda and the creative economy, on the other side, the Conference aims to critically debate the role of the arts as a pillar of cultural, social-ecological and socioeconomic
development, of social cohesion and active citizenship, as well as on the processes
of identities construction. Thus, the approach will focus on the diverse ways through
which the arts are intertwining with processes of identity-making, both at individual
and collective levels, and the material and symbolic reframing of social, economic
and cultural differences in contemporary societies.
