Patricia Dewey will speak on “Navigating the European Union Cultural Policy Labyrinth” on Thursday, Feb. 7 at 11 a.m. in 238 Herald R. Clark Building at Brigham Young University.
Since the 1992 Maastricht Treaty, “European culture” has been the means of the European Union used to foster common identity and destiny. Four lectures at BYU this semester, including Dewey’s, explore the cultural strategies and policies the EU has adopted to construct an identity as well as some of the limits accompanying such a task.
Dewey is an assistant professor of arts and administration at the University of Oregon and serves as associate director for cultural policy with the UO Center for Community Arts and Cultural Policy. Most of her research focuses on international cultural policy, cultural development and arts administration education.
This lecture will be archived online. For more information on David M. Kennedy Center events, see the calendar online at kennedy.byu.edu.
