Monday, 18 June 2012, 09:00 - Tuesday, 19 June 2012, 17:45

University of Westminster, Cavendish Site, Pavilion Room, 115 New Cavendish Street, London, W1W 6UW

Two-day workshop collaboratively organised by The Publics Research Programme at The Centre for Citizenship, Identities and Governance at The Open University; the Centre for Global Media and Democracy at Goldsmiths College, University of London; and the Centre for the Study of Democracy at the University of Westminster.

Workshop rationale and aim

That there is a relationship between publicness and democracy has often been taken for granted. However, at this time of widespread instability, political upheaval and experimentation, when publics are increasingly being called upon to act, it is sometimes in the name of democracy, but not always. By exploring how ideas and practices of publicness and democracy are being constituted, enacted, related and reconfigured in different settings, this workshop aims to investigate the modes of public action and democracy being invoked, imagined and struggled over around the world.

This initiative is a collaboration organised by the Publics research programme in the Centre for Citizenship, Identities and Governance (CCIG) at The Open University, the Centre for the Study of Democracy at the University of Westminster the Centre for Global Media and Democracy at Goldsmiths College, University of London.
