The Humanities in the European Research Area (HERA) Network are pleased to announce the implementation of a new Joint Research Programme “Public Spaces: Culture and Integration in Europe” (HERA JRP PS).
The aim of the HERA JRP “Public Spaces: Culture and Integration in Europe” will be to deepen the theoretical and empirical cultural understanding of public spaces in a European context. The programme has been designed to facilitate a broad range of cultural approaches to conceptualising public space, its structural and processual formations, and its possible outcomes in terms of, for example, integration, exclusion, disintegration, fragmentation, hybridization, amalgamation or transmission.
Collaborative research projects under this topic should explore the dynamics through which public spaces shape, and are shaped, by cultural activity, and how various forms of dis/integration can be understood in relation to such spaces.
The expected publication date of the Call for Proposals for humanities-led proposals to this HERA Joint Research Programme is 24 August 2017, with the deadline for submitting Outline Proposals on 24 October 2017.
