Call for papers to international conference: Changing Global Hierarchies of Value? Museums, artifacts , frames, and flows

Call for papers for the international conference 'Changing Global Hierarchies of Value? Museums, artifacts , frames, and flows' by the University of Copenhagen and National Museum of Denmark, 20-22 August, 2018.

This is the final conference of the project 'Global Europe: Constituting Europe from the Outside In through Artefacts'. The Global Europe project explores how the collection, circulation, classification and museum exhibition of objects define Europe from the outside in during Europe’s present loss of global hegemony – especially in relation to Japan and four non-European BRICS countries (Brazil, China, India, South Africa), in comparison with the early modern period of European ascendancy. This 'Changing Global Hierarchies of Value?' conference invites both paper proposals on a range of topics that explore global networks of valuation and validation and their local forms and entanglements in the current period. The papers are expected to be empirically grounded, and may – but do not have to – refer to the five countries targeted by the Global Europe project.

The keynote speech titled Museum Transactions: Negotiating Knowledges, Governing Cultures will be presented by Professor Tony Bennett of the Institute for Culture and Society of the Western Sydney University in Australia. Tony Bennett is the author of – among many other works – The birth of the museum: history, theory, politics (1995), Pasts beyond memories: evolution, museums, colonialism (2004), and Making culture, changing society (2013); and he currently leads the project 'Museum, Field, Metropolis, Colony: Practices of Social Governance'.

The conference is convened by Prof. Oscar Salemink, Amélia Siegel Corrêa PhD, Jens Sejrup PhD, Caroline Lillelund and Vibe Nielsen, who make up the research team for the Global Europe project.
