MIGRATING HERITAGE: networks and collaborations across European museums, libraries and public cultural institutions, 3 - 4 December 2012, University of Glasgow, UK http://wp3.mela-project.eu/wp/pages/research-field-03-international-conference

International Conference organized by HoA - School of Culture and Creative Arts, University of Glasgow, as part of  EC-funded FP7 project European Museums in an Age of Migrations (MeLA)


Call for Papers

How can museums define new innovative practices, spaces and policies that reflect the challenges of the contemporary processes of globalisation, mobility and migration? This question is being addressed by European Museums in an age of migrations - MeLa (http://www.mela-project.eu/), a 4-year collaborative research project funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme, Socio-Economic Sciences and Humanities Program (FP7).  MeLa Research Field 3 (http://wp3.mela-project.eu/), composed by international institutions and led by the University of Glasgow, is organising an international conference to identify and explore innovative trans-national and trans-local partnerships, collaborations and policies between European museums, libraries & other public cultural institutions around the themes of European cultural and scientific heritage, migration and integration, and use of ICTs.  

What are the experiences and effects of collaboration, partnerships and networks around the core activities of archiving, preserving, displaying history and artefacts, and the associated categories and hierarchies of cultural value and identity? Is it possible to allow more flexible and heterogenic connections of public cultural institutions within the European/Mediterranean space?  How are museums, libraries and public cultural institutions presenting themselves and interact with multicultural audiences? What guidelines and policies could be suggested to support networking between European museums, libraries and public cultural institutions around the themes of European cultural and scientific heritage, migration and integration?
