Workshop: "Museum Discourse. A Socio-cultural Agent for Change"

7 March 2019 from 9:30am to 6:00pm

Federico Sabatini and Cecilia Lazzeretti are organising a workshop on "Museum Discourse. A Socio-cultural Agent for Change". The event will take place on Thursday 7th March 2019 at the Department of Cultures, Politics and Society of the University of Turin (Lungo Dora Siena 100/A, Turin).


The workshop intends to provide an interdisciplinary analysis of the language(s) of museums as the main factor construing inclusive socio-cultural mind-frames and community involvement. 
From the perspectives of Linguistics, Discourse Analysis, Sociology, Anthropology and Curatorship proper, the Museum will be approached as a process of communication and signification, leading to the construction of relevant social functions. A museum active in the cultural process through its “communicative actions” presupposes the study of its language and its construction of messages and “discourses”, explicit or hidden, in the displays, exhibitions, practices, community activities.
