Hi all,

We would like to invite you to the Symposium "Museums and Civil Society after Brexit", hosted by the Ceredigion Museum. The event is sponsored by WISERD - the Wales Institute of Social & Economic Research, Data & Methods. 

This interdisciplinary forum brings different voices together to discuss the financial and cultural impact of Brexit for representing and performing identity and imagine future scenarios. 

When: Wednesday January the 9th 2019
Where: Ceredigion Museum, Aberystwyth, Wales

Museums are a key platform for a civil society in transformation. This interdisciplinary forum brings together different voices to reflect on the financial and cultural impact of Brexit for representing and performing identity within the public sphere. The event links theory with practice by bringing academics together with curators, administrators, and visitor groups to work through dilemmas that arise when developing exhibitions and managing collections.

Details

Session I: Marketisation and pressures faced by museums - a historical perspective
For almost two decades museums have been pressured to generate their own income, while academic critiques of cultural commodification are invariably levelled against local grassroots interests as an appropriation or a dilution of ‘the authentic’. Are there other conversations about economy-identity relations to be had within the museum sector? How might the increasingly challenging fiscal environment, with its heightened sensitivity to community and difference, work to create new museum communities and new museum responsibilities?

Session II: Issues of representation, participation and global relations
International relationships in terms of policy and funding have been crucial in shaping the profile of Welsh culture and Welsh museums but what role will Welsh museums play in a post-Brexit institutional landscape cut off from European financial and infrastructural support. How can museums represent the competing identity claims associated with Brexit? How might museums articulate multiple identities (e.g. Welsh, British, European) in a time of popular nationalism? How might they help to cultivate new modes of belonging in the current political climate?

The event is organised by Silvia Hassouna, a PhD-student researcher working on national identity and museums in the Palestinian context, and Rhys Dafydd Jones, lecturer in Human Geography and member of Wales Institute of Social & Economic Research (WISERD).
