2021 ENCATC Policy Debate


Elodie Bordat-Chauvin

Researcher, University Paris 8, France and the 2014 ENCATC Research Award winner

I am currently working on the transnational circulation of cultural programs in the Ibero-American space and in particular on the effects of budgetary austerity policies on the popular and local culture program [cultura viva comunitaria] Puntos de Cultura. This research will be the subject of a publication at the next AFSP congress in Bordeaux.

I also work on the processes of institutionalization of cultural policies in Mexico and Argentina and in particular on the theoretical dialogue between the sociology of French institutions and historical North American neo-institutionalism. This discussion will be the subject of a communication at the next AFS congress in Aix-en-Provence.
