Framing Public Culture


Dr. Robert Neather, Head of Department of Translation, Interpreting and Intercultural Studies


Dr. Eugene Birman, Department of Music


This sub-theme focuses on how culture is produced and represented in the public sphere, and how such representations are in turn consumed or contested by the general public. The sub-theme includes areas such as the production and public circulation of literature, the role of advertising in the construction of cultural identity, and the ways in which bilingual museums create cosmopolitan spaces for intercultural dialogue.
