Tales of the city
This workshop has a number of mutually strengthening aims and contributions. The first aim is to apply and adjust the popular memory approach to the study of narrative formations around cities more generally. Thus, the workshop will enrich the studies of urbanity at IUR with approaches from cultural studies and the humanities. The second aim is to summarize and discuss available scholarship on narratives about Malmö produced and circulated in different circuits. The third aim is to plan future research on the narrative formation around Malmö, aligning narratives from city officials, from the city’s inhabitants, and from outside of the city.
