This course is required of all students intending to major or minor in Global Creative Industries. This course will examine the relationship between cultural policy and the development of the global creative industries. We will analyze why and how the state intervenes in the production, distribution and consumption of cultural goods and ideas. We will trace the development of cultural policies in different countries through a comparative approach. We will also explore the impact and limitation of national cultural policy in the global arena. Our goal is to help students identify and explain the complex interaction among business, politics and culture behind the operation of the global creative industries. Students will be encouraged to select a country or an area of focus for deeper examination in writing their own essay.
Monday – Friday 09:30 – 12:30
