Bergen Summer Research School

I’m so excited to be heading off to Norway next week to take part in the Bergen Summer Research School at the University of Bergen. This summer school brings together scholars, policy makers, and PhD students from all around the world to tackle some of the most pressing social, political, and environmental issues of our time.

I’ll be participating in a two week course that looks at connecting the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals to local, national, and global cultural policy. We’ll be focusing on issues pertaining to arts heritage, indigeneity, cultural rights, and intellectual property, digitization and glocalization, and postcoloniality and sustainable development. I cannot wait to immerse myself in these topics.
