Worlding Public Cultures

Ed. by Ming Tiampo
This publication series aims to investigate the global dimensions of contemporary public culture through the concept of ‘worlding’, an understanding of the world generated through continuous processes of world-making. The deployment of ‘worlding’ in this series builds on the postcolonial project of critiquing universalized Eurocentric frameworks, and is committed to a radical ontology of openness and relationality. Going beyond current top-down models of inclusion, diversity, and other representations of the global, ‘worlding’ critiques radical alterity in favour of a pluriversality attendant to entanglements, difficult histories, and power relations. It grounds the global within local and transculturally/transnationally intertwined worlds, and foregrounds the possibility of continuously making and re-making new worlds through cultural production. The publication series takes as its starting point ‘Worlding Public Cultures: The Arts and Social Innovation’ (WPC), a collaborative research project and transnational platform conceived by the Transnational and Transcultural Arts and Culture Exchange (TrACE) network in 2018. WPC is funded by the Trans-Atlantic Platform for the Social Sciences and Humanities (T-AP) through a collaboration between the following granting agencies: Dutch Research Council (NWO), Netherlands Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), UK Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)/ DLR Project Management Agency, Germany Fonds de recherche du Québec (FRQSC), Canada Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), Canada The WPC publication series is produced through the generous funding of ICI Berlin Institute for Cultural Inquiry, BMBF, NWO, SSHRC, and the National Museum of World Cultures, Netherlands.
