The tenth Nordic Conference on Cultural Policy Research (NCCPR) 2019 will is held at Bifröst University in Iceland.
The theme of the conference is cultural peripheries and it focuses on questions concerning marginal culture, definitional boundaries of cultural policy research, and fringes in cultural politics.
Periphery is the outer limits or edge of a subject matter. It presupposes a centre, of which the periphery is not a part but relates to it, and describes a marginal or secondary position of a group, subject, or sphere of activity. The “cultural” can thus be either central or peripheral, defined by convention, convenience and control.
In that context we ask: What is peripheral to cultural policy research? What is peripheral to culture or the Nordic? What is peripheral to cultural policy?
The NCCPR 2019 is an inclusive, multidisciplinary conference where practitioners and researchers address issues regarding Nordic cultural policy, from standpoints which are relevant both to academic research and to the cultural sector. We invite papers variety of fields and practices provided that the contributions relate to Nordic cultural policy research in a broad sense.
