Cultural Studies Unit

The Cultural Studies Unit was set up in 2020. The Unit advances research that focuses on culture and cultural policies, and the way they interact with broader social and political contexts. It adopts a broad definition of culture that includes identity, discourses, and cultural practices as well as creative cultural production. It aims to contribute to a deeper understanding of cultural change at the local, regional, and global levels, and to raise the quality of public debates concerning cultural policies.
