Culture Shots programme 6 focuses on “Geek Culture” and asks whether this is a culture in itself.
Evans Shirihuru presents and Irenia Álvarez interviews Adolfo Álvarez (en Español) about Star Wars’ cross-generational and cross-cultural appeal.
This is followed by a panel discussion in which Irenia Álvarez, Gillian McInerney and Andy Martin attempt to define “geek culture” through exploring its dimensions, and asking whether it has its own distinct culture.
Culture Shots is part of a series of 13 programmes examining the meaning of culture and promoting intercultural understanding.
This project is co-financed by the European Commission under the European Integration Fund and is supported by the Office for the Promotion of Migrant Integration in the Department of Justice and Equality and Pobal.
