Aims

The course aims to introduce contemporary theories and research methods of media and cultural studies for the study of creative economy and cultural policy and practices. Case studies and empirical evidence will demonstrate how cultural practices link to concepts and theories of creativity, human capital, globalization and localization, which contribute to the growth of the creative economy. Various cultural policy models and their impacts on specific sectors of the creative industries will be compared and contrasted in terms of the goals and roles of different government agencies, non-governmental organizations and private foundations.
