The Higher Seminar

Benjamin Martin presents the current draft of an article, co-authored with Fredrik Norén (Humlab, Umeå University), which uses digital text analysis to explore the uses of the concept of culture in UNESCO’s standard-setting instruments: the conventions, declarations, and recommendations adopted by the organization’s General Conference since 1945. This investigation is part of the research project International Ideas at UNESCO.

Seminar text in English; discussion in English and Swedish.
