UCL ISH doctoral students present at ICCPR 2016 in South Korea

1 August 2016


Tuchung Liu and Dimitra Kizlari presented their work at the International Conference on Cultural Policy Research held between 5-9 July in Seoul, South Korea. The main function of the International Conference on Cultural Policy Research is to promote, in association with the International Journal of Cultural Policy, a biennial research conference of high academic standards in different parts of the world.

Tuchung discussed the instrument of cultural policy for promoting sustainable development in historical districts in Taiwan. In terms of heritage making, his paper will stress the importance between social imagination and place narrative to form a space for practicing cultural sustainability. In addition, Dimitra  focused on Greece’s foreign cultural policy and, specifically, on the Hellenic Foundation for Culture. Her paper discusses wider problems within the Greek cultural sector amidst the debt crisis and addresses the need for inter-ministerial collaboration so the country establishes strong cultural relations with foreign countries.

Both students traveled to South Korea under the Bartlett Graduate Student Research Funding scheme.
