EXCLUSION: 2nd Biennial PARSE Conference

November 15–17, 2017
Venue: Gothenburg, Sweden
Early registration: May 15 – June 30
Regular registration: July 2 onwards

How does exclusion operate at a local, national and international level in the arts, in education and in cultural production? Within the arts, how can we improve access to learning and the formation of experience?

Within and beyond the field of cultural production, individuals and groups of people are excluded from territorial, subjective, environmental and imaginative spaces, be they national, institutional, or virtual. To what extent do strategies and infrastructures of inclusion risk replicating and reinforcing individualised imaginaries within broadly hierarchical social structures?

How do images of exclusion circulate? What are the politics of access? What forms of research and which actions can be taken within the artistic and pedagogical environment that may open and provide spaces of contact and forms of rights?

The conference will have six thematic strands, each of which will run across a whole day and within which discussion amongst delegates will be of equal importance to panel and lecture presentations:

  1. Geographies of Exclusion
  2. Educational Exclusion
  3. Colonisation and Decolonisation
  4. Vocabularies of Exclusion
  5. Participation as Exclusion
  6. Indigeneity
