10th Jul 2006 to 12th Jul 2006 AcademicChanging Perceptions of the Public SphereChanging Perceptions of the Public Sphere is a two-year research collaboration between Rice University, represented by the School of Humanities and the Center for European Studies, and the University of Cambridge (England), represented by the Center for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH) and the Department of German. The research project seeks to examine the changes the "public sphere" has undergone as a conceptual model and as a discursive formation of actual political culture. Given the new geographies of power that have emerged over the last twenty years or so in the context of globalization, it is more than timely to investigate the public sphere from an interdisciplinary perspective that brings together scholars from a range of different fields, such as history, literary studies, international relations, philosophy, and cultural geography (Adrian House Seminar Room). Registration Details.
