BLOG: A Sample Blog Entry

In our second blog about working with Talking Birds Theatre to disseminate our research on the impact of solitary confinement and its relationship to mental breakdown we consider staging, locations, logistics, and the dreaded ‘what shall we call the piece’ discussion!

We’re delighted to hear that writer and director Peter McCann is available to work with us once again – his work is fantastic and he has a great feel for the historical material. We thoroughly enjoyed our previous two productions with him and this will ensure that we maintain the Trilogy feel.

Juggling dates hasn’t been easy – we need suitable performance venues to be available, actors to be able to rehearse and perform in all locations, and then we are trying to fit in our own availability so we can run the post-show panel discussions. After shuffling around other obligations, we think we have finally agreed the dates. We just need to double check everything before we can announce them.

Cultural Rights and Global Development (Special Issue 22: 2018)

This special issue investigates the political nexus of cultural life and the law, creative or artistic activity and permitted actions or statements. Cultural Rights has been a recognised legal concept since before the 1966 UN International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. However, as the 1966 Covenant demonstrated, separating the cultural from the social and civil is not straightforward, or rather, only apparently straightforward if articulated in terms of anthropological or sociological generalisations, which are not wholly useful. This collection of nine very different papers demonstrate how the ‘culture’ in Cultural Rights must be made specific and analytically useful for a ‘Right’ to be both credible and operational as a legal instrument or set thereof.

The special issue therefore aims to set out the legal terrain of Cultural Rights, interrogate its terms and conditions, and then to put into question how they pertain to specific forms of culture in specific places.
