Inkinen tunnetaan visionaarisena ja poleemisena ajattelijana sekä innostavana puhujana, jonka keskeinen pyrkimys on akateemisen teorian kytkeminen elävään elämään ja käytäntöön. Inkinen on toiminut 1990-luvun alusta lähtien tutkijana ja opettajana mm. Vaasan, Lapin, Oulun ja Turun yliopistoissa sekä luennoinut aktiivisesti eri eurooppalaisissa korkeakouluissa. Tutkijana, konsulttina, kuraattorina ja neuvonantajana hänen erityisosaamisensa liittyy mm. seuraaville alueille: media- ja informaatioyhteiskunta elämystalous luovuus ja innovaatiot verkostot, heimot, identiteetit uusi mediateknologia sisältötuotanto elektroninen estetiikka Sam Inkinen on toiminut konsulttina ja asiantuntijana lukuisissa media- ja teknologia-alan kehityshankkeissa perehtyen varsinkin yhteisö- ja identiteettikysymyksiin sekä monikanavaisuuteen ja hybridimedian problematiikkaan.
Tohtori Inkinen on toimittanut yksin ja kollegojensa kanssa lukuisia tieteellisiä teoksia. Näistä mainittavimpia on kansainvälisesti arvostetun Walter de Gruyter -kustantamon julkaisema antologia Mediapolis. Aspects of Texts, Hypertexts and Multimedial Communication (1999) sekä teossarjat Mediatieteen kysymyksiä (Lapin yliopisto 1998–2001) ja The Integrated Media Machine (Edita & Lapin yliopisto 1999–2005). Tulevaisuusaiheista tuotantoa edustaa Henrik Bruunin ja Fredrik Lindbergin kanssa toimitettu antologia Tulevaisuus.nyt. Riskiyhteiskunnan haasteet ja mahdollisuudet (Finn Lectura 2002), joka on ilmestynyt ruotsiksi nimellä Framtiden i nuet. Om konsten att möta det okända (Söderströms 2003). Kasvatuksen ja koulutuksen haasteisiin syvennytään mm. teoksessa Sivistyksen haaste. Kirjoituksia kulttuurista, kasvatuksesta ja teknologiasta (2003). Sam Inkisen laaja väitöskirja Teknokokemus ja Zeitgeist. Digitaalisen mediakulttuurin yhteisöjä, utopioita ja avantgarde-virtauksia (1999) keskittyy uuden mediateknologian, informaatioyhteiskunnan ja digitaalisen kulttuurin ilmiökentän tarkasteluun. Tuoreemmasta kirjallisesta tuotannosta mainitsemisen arvoisia ovat kollegojen kanssa toimitettu uutuusteos Minne matka, luova talous? (2006), Matti Itkosen ja V.A. Heikkisen kanssa toimitettu 640-sivuinen antologia Eletty tapakulttuuri. Arkea, juhlaa ja pyhää etsimässä (2004) sekä Suomen ja Viron kulttuurisuhteeseen keskittyvä Eesti ja uus Euroopa / Viro ja uusi Eurooppa (2006).

IIPC Debate 23 September

IIPC Debate #85
Fri Sep 23, 12-2 pm, Janus Hall (Kaivokatu 12, Turku)
IIPC Visiting Professor Justin O’Connor (Monash University): Shanghai: Images of Modernity

Shanghai is where the word ’modern’ made landfall in China. It was the Paris of the East, with the gas and electricity, the sewers, roads and Boulevards a la Haussmann. It was the publishing capital, the film capital, the recorded music capital of China, as well as the pulsating heart of both western and Chinese capital in China. But what is this ‘modern’ represented by Shanghai? How does it sit in terms of the broader narratives and conflicts around the impact of the West on the Middle Kingdom from the Opium Wars onward? I ask this question from the perspective of post-1978, when China yet again embarked on a process of catch-up with the West, facing similar questions of how an indigenous history and culture could accommodate the forces emanating from the West and at what price. Shanghai’s role as ‘most western city’ has been deployed as a key part of the Chinese government’s response to this question. In this paper I try to understand that response in the light of Shanghai’s complex, multilayered accumulation of images of modernity.

Justin O’Connor is Professor of Communications and Cultural Economy at Monash University. He is also visiting Professor in the School of Media and Design, Shanghai Jiaotong University, where he jointly runs a Global Cultural Economy research hub. He heads the new MFJ research unit Culture Media Economy , is program leader for the Master of Cultural Economy, and a member of the Asian Cultural and Media Studies Research Cluster.

He is part of the UNESCO ‘Expert Facility’, supporting the 2005 Convention on the Protection and Promotion of Cultural Diversity, a board member of Renew Australia and convenes the Global Cultural Economy Network.

Until 2012 he was Professor in the Creative Industries Faculty, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia and visiting Chair, Department of Humanities, Shanghai Jiaotong University. From 2006-8 he was Professor of Cultural Industries at the School of Performance and Cultural Industries, University of Leeds, and between 1995 and 2006 he was Director of Manchester Institute for Popular Culture at Manchester Metropolitan University.

4) Temporary uses will be introduced and explored via popular music and analyzed by their significance, on the basis of design, sustainability, profitability, creativity, inclusiveness and heritage.

Here are the descriptions of all four workshops:
 
Workshop 1
 
Popular Culture and Urban Studies
 
PhD, Kari Kallioniemi, University of Turku
 
The main aim of this workshop is to explore the various ways how popular culture and urban studies are connected, both in their historical and contemporary forms, and how different concepts of popular and urban could provide material for students interested about the relationship between popular culture and urban studies.
 
Workshop 2
 
Crime fiction, city and emotions
 
Dr Silja Laine, University of Turku
 
Crime fiction is in many ways a transnational genre, written, produced and consumed in every continent and it may be set in the most extraordinary or distant places. At the same time it has national traditions and many popular films and books have a special tie with a specific city. This session sets out to investigate the relationship between the city and characters of crime fiction in literature, film, TV, and other media. What kind of emotions and affects do cities generate in crime fiction? How do specific urban places connect to crime, for instance by enhancing criminal activities or shielding people from them, creating places of danger and fear, or safety and community? In what ways are gender and urban spaces intertwined?
 
Workshop 3
 
Cultural heritage of popular culture
 
Professor Anna Sivula, University of Turku
 
Popular culture is an important source of the both tangible and intangible cultural heritage of urban and digital communities. This workshop explores the complex relationship between the cultural heritage and popular culture. In this group we explore the heritage communities that use the remnants of 20th and 21th century popular culture as places of memory. We are interested in the methodologies of critical heritage studies concerning the new heritages. We are also interested in the different kinds of case studies of the process, where the cultural heritage of popular culture emerges and is solidified.
 
Workshop 4
 
Temporal Uses of Urban Space
 
Dr Giacomo Bottá, University of Helsinki
 
This workshop explores temporary uses via popular music and analyses their significance on the basis of design, sustainability, profitability, creativity, inclusiveness and heritage. Are there different typologies of popular music-led temporary uses to be taken into account? What are their outcomes from the social and spatial dimension? What roles plays the temporary in festivals? How can we mobilize temporality to durable and long-lasting effects?
