Project

Cultural Displays and Encounters in Globalizing Urban Areas. A Study of Visual Expressions of Ethnic/National Identity Versus the Emergence of a Transnational Attitude in the European Public Realm.

This project proposes to interrogate the visual dimensions of globalization and acculturation processes (and their opposite forces) as expressed in material culture elements of a varied nature, as well as through visible and recordable aspects of human behavior in urban public spaces. It aims to enrich and complement the more abstract discourse of globalization and transnationalism with empirically grounded insights regarding concrete expressions and enactments of cultural encounters in urban hotspots.
