Centre for Public Cultures
The Centre for Public Cultures aims to promote high-quality research, teaching and public dissemination of historical and contemporary aspects of public cultures, within national, European and international contexts. The Centre promotes multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches to the study of public cultures and society. The Centre has established links with a number of national and international organisations. It aims to be the primary resource centre for Public Culture Studies in Ireland and Europe.
The Centre for Public Cultures Studies functions as an umbrella organisation for a variety of taught and research programmes within the Faculty of Enterprise + Humanities, as well as for ongoing research, dissemination projects and public debate. The Centre focuses on a number of key themes and reflects key issues on the national, European and international agenda, including:
|Citizenship and Identity: access, universal rights, participation|
|Work identities and the individualisation of the employment relationship|
|Public cultures and enterprise|
|Ethics and the public sphere|
|Cultural identities and public cultures|
|Cultural tourism and public heritage studies|
|Public communication; the public sphere|
|Public arts and cultural interaction|
|Technology and culture|
These themes are also addressed in the Centre’s taught MA in Public Cultures and Society.
