Press Play Conference 2019


Academic research, artistic practice, and civic engagement are becoming ever more closely linked. In The Work of Art in the World, and through her ongoing ‘Cultural Agents’ project, Doris Sommer argues for the productive proximity of creative practice and critical thinking, positing them as essential tools for the achievement of social engagement and transformation.


When: March 28th and 29th, 2019

Where: MACRO (Museo d'Arte Contemporanea Rome) | British School At Rome | MAAM (Museo dell’Altro e dell’Altrove di Metropoliz)


This conference will bring together art practitioners and academics in order to explore common interests in creativity in, and as, research practice. It grounds this conversation in the broad disciplinary area of Modern Languages, which has been at a critical juncture in terms of defining its purpose and identity for some considerable time. One of the aims of this event is to seek contributions from outside Modern Languages, which will help the discipline to move forward in ways which are creative and vital, and pay full tribute to the capacity of the intercultural imagination to design and implement transformative social modes of practice.
