Conference schedule update from the local organizing committee

March 18, 2020

The local organising committee of ICCPR 2020 has been keeping track of the developments surrounding the spread of the Corona/COVID-19 virus. Currently this is affecting a number of conferences and events worldwide, and a number of organisations and universities have likewise stopped international travel for the time being. We are observing the situation closely and are evaluating the potential impact on ICCPR 2020, scheduled on September 1-4 at Doshisha University in Kyoto, Japan.

At present, planning for this conference continues. However we are aware that the situation is evolving rapidly. We are keeping a close watch on recommendations from the World Health Organization and travel restrictions from various affected countries as well as the Japanese government’s travel advice. The health and safety of our attendees is of utmost importance, and we will consider all options and develop contingency plans.

For now we are continuing preparations for the conference for its intended dates, but because of the current uncertainties, we are not starting the system for registration and fee payment. We hope to announce our final decision by the end of April by email, on the website and Facebook.

We advise all conference participants who have not yet booked their travel and accommodations to hold off the booking until a definite decision is announced. We hope that everyone understands that these are exceptional circumstances.

We hope all of you to keep well.

Call for Proposals

Theme

The theme of ICCPR 2020 is Resilience of Cultural Policy. In the rapid globalization and digital transformation of recent years, one major challenge for cultural policy seems to be how best to maintain or strengthen regional, local or various representations of communities’ own culture. Cultural policies of many nations, in the meantime, are increasingly expected to work with (or for) other policy areas such as economic development, social inclusion and urban planning. Is such an approach to cultural policy crossing many policy areas negatively affecting 'cultural policy proper' concerns? Was there any time in history when cultural policy was independent, autonomous and detached from socio-economic aims of government? To what extent is cultural policy of today 'resilient', or should it be so? ‘Resilient’ to what forces and in what directions? These are some of the issues this conference would like to address with invited guests and participants from all over the world.
