The Department of Culture, Politics and Society of the University of Turin is organizing the international conference "Inclusiveness in and through Museum Discourse". The event takes place from 19th to 21st February 2020 at Palazzina Einaudi - Campus Luigi Einaudi, Room 7 (Lungo Dora Siena 100, Turin).
The Conference explores the strategic role played by museums in setting forth discursive practices of inclusion, tolerance, social equality, and, consequently, in pursuing ethical objectives also through the language they choose to adopt. While fostering reflection on the actual effectiveness of those textualizing processes favouring inclusiveness, the aim of the Conference is to underscore the linguistic potential of Museum Discourse in its imbrication with human rights discourse and pedagogic discourse.
