Facing the ever complex global cultural scenario: rapid flows of people, technologies, thoughts, goods, labors, capital, space and time, how national/city cultural policies can be reimagined to meet up the cultural publicness has become the key issue. Symbols and ideas, which collide and converge in both real and virtual worlds, are transforming our everyday life through information and digital technologies. Global mobility and fluidity is posing new challenges to cultural leadership for the heads of states, chiefs of national and municipal cultural administrations, cultural institutions, cultural entrepreneurs, not-for-profit organizations, immigrants, and individual cultural practitioners, who intend to lead and govern public cultural affairs. Whilst engagements of agents in cultural public sphere are shaping central concerns of cultural governance study today. “2016 International Symposium on Cultural Trajectories: Cultural Governance, Global Mobility and Actions” expects to stimulate responses and dialogues for people from various specialties and positions. The following directions form the major themes of the conference:
- Digital Convergence and Cultural Economy: How is cultural policy and governance shaping and reshaped by flows of creative workers, industries, symbolic economy, cultural consumption and digital technologies?
- Human Rights and Cultural Governance: How does cultural policy deal with issues of wars, global diaspora and immigrants, cultural diversities, human rights, and transitional justice?
- Museums and Cultural Resources in the Age of Global Mobility: How do museums become converging sites for mobile people, ideas, technologies and cultural resources? And how do cultural institutions act by making use of big data?
- Multicultural Mobility vs. Cultural Security How does one conceive cultural security? Should one seek cultural subjectivity, integrity, particularity, or should one look to creativity and changes in the age of global mobility?
- Cultural Resistance? Or Cultural Engagement Should one act to resist the structural/hegemonic power of cultural system (states and enterprises)? Or should one engage positively, critically and reflectively in our daily life?
- Open Issues
