CCPR to host two RSE-funded workshop series

The Royal Society of Edinburgh has funded two new cutting-edge projects to run at Centre for Cultural Policy Research (CCPR) at the University of Glasgow in 2016/17.

CCPR’s Dr Inge Sørensen and Copenhagen University’s Associate Professor Eva Norup Redvall, will direct three workshops on ‘Commissioning creativity and funding film and television’.

These events will bring together screen commissioners, funders, producers and academics from Scotland, Denmark and Sweden to compare national models and develop new policy thinking.

Dr Alex Benchimol of Critical Studies and CCPR’s Professor Philip Schlesinger will follow-up their earlier RSE project on the Scottish press. They will lead two interdisciplinary workshops on ‘The national press, civil society and constitutional identity in Scotland’, comparing the 1707 Acts of Union and the 2014 Independence Referendum.

Policy makers, journalists and leading academics will discuss the wider lessons of such historical comparison.
