Online launch event, December 1, 2021
It’s our great pleasure to invite you to the unique opportunity to meet the contributors of the Journal of Cultural Management and Cultural Policy’s current issue:
This issue examines the effects digitization and digitalization have had on discourses, research designs, and processes of artistic production, distribution, and reception. Dealing with digital phenomena reconfigures social patterns of action, thinking, and organization in the arts and cultural sectors. These sectors are changing profoundly and rapidly, and with them their networks, audiences, the conditions of work and consumption. These issues are particularly acute during the ongoing COVID 19-pandemic with serious effects on the arts and cultural fields, showing the possibilities, but also the limits, of digitalization and digitization in the cultural sector. The authors discuss the challenges and opportunities digitalization and digitization imply for cultural management and cultural policy.
Along guest editor Marjo Mäenpää (Center for Cultural Policy Research CUPORE), the following authors will introduce their perspectives on the topics mentioned above (in the order of their appearance):
Special guest Bjarki Valtysson, University of Copenhagen, will give a brief introduction to his book "Digital Cultural Politics: From Policy to Practice".
Afterwards, there will be time for you to engage in individual discussions with the authors and to socialize with the other audience members.
The event will be moderated by Marjo Mäenpää and Constance DeVereaux (University of Connecticut), in tandem.
