Eurovision – Museums exhibiting Europe (EMEE) is a project funded with support from the European Commission to explore an innovative interdisciplinary approach for national and regional museums, aiming at re-interpreting their objects in a broader context of European and transnational history. Museum visitors shall face objects not only on a regionally and nationally determined level of meaning, but discover transnational and European perspectives using new means of presentation, performances and possibilities for participation. At the same time the project develops creative concepts for audience development and studies methods to attract the rather large number of “non-visitors” to the museums.

‘Writing at Borders’ & ‘Concurrences’: New Thematic Sections from Culture Unbound

Culture Unbound: Journal of Current Cultural Research is an open access e-journal that seeks to be a forum for contemporary, cutting edge cultural research from a wide range of disciplinary and interdisciplinary areas.

Culture Unbound has recently presented two new thematic sections that give various perspectives on concepts such as borders, mobility, narrativity and power. ‘Writing at Borders’ is edited by Tuulikki Kurki, Saija Kaskinen, Kirsi Laurén & Mari Ristolainen and focuses on the borders between Finland, Soviet/Russia and the Baltic states to discuss how geographical, social, and cultural borders have been reconceptualized from a territorially placed boundary, to a semantically constructed, ritualized and performed symbolic border, and finally to a discursive (textual) construction. ‘Concurrences’, edited by Diana Brydon, Peter Forsgren and Gunlög Fur, engages with the postcolonial efforts to recover the voice and agency of the subaltern and challenge monolithic imperial representations. These articles investigate various cultural archives […]
