Global Energy Cultures Forum

In collaboration with Msheireb Museums, the Center for International and Regional Studies (CIRS) at Georgetown University in Qatar (GU-Q) is hosting a forum on “Global Energy Cultures: How Energy Shapes our Everyday Lives.” Every aspect of our contemporary lives is shaped by energy; societies are fully dependent on the accessibility and availability of energy products, whether in the form of hydrocarbons or alternative energy sources. Intersecting academic and artistic perspectives, scholars, artists, musicians, and filmmakers engage in discussions around the broad theme of “energy,” opening up the conversation and making academic research accessible to the public through a series of multidisciplinary talks and cultural events.

Date and Time:

  • Saturday, December 9, 2023: 8 AM – 8 PM
  • Sunday, December 10, 2023: 8 AM – 6 PM

Location:  Msheireb Museums (Company House, Bin Jelmood House, Mohammed Bin Jassim House)

The program is available on the CIRS Webpage.
