“Reinvestigating Culture in Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences”
May 26th – 28th 2016, Faculty of Media and Communications, Belgrade, Serbia
Faculty of Media and Communications, Belgrade, Serbia and the Centre for Culture and Cultural Studies, Skopje, Macedonia, organizes International Conference “Reinvestigating Culture in Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences”.
Confronted with an urgent need for historical, political and societal acculturation of our times, this conference aims at re-questioning and inquiring the notion of culture itself. After the Second World War, the notion of culture emerged as a space to be contested, re-evaluated and diverged from universalistic and general claims to fixed identity, nationalistic and ethnocentric politics and deterministic uses and abuses in the socio-political, epistemological and artistic realms. Academic field of Cultural Studies has been developed during the second half of 20th Century, as an interdisciplinary field combining various approaches, from Humanities to Sciences – reflecting on dominant cultural knowledge and practices, as well as the effects of counter-cultural movements and initiatives on contemporary globalized and technologically mediated societies.
