Transcultural Europe : cultural policy in a changing Europe / edited by Ulrike Hanna Meinhof and Anna Triandafyllidou

Meinhof, Ulrike Hanna [ed.] | Triandafyllidou, Anna [ed.].
ISBN: 1403997128.Edition: 1st ed.Publisher: New York : Palgrave Macmillan, 2006Description: xii, 315 p.Summary: What are the key issues facing the makers of European cultural policy in the 21st century? How is cultural policy at the metropolitan, national and European levels addressing recent developments that are complicating the cultural and social realities of contemporary Europe? This book offers an innovative assessment of these questions and aims to provoke debates about the way forward for cultural policy in Europe. Based on extensive theoretical and empirical research by an interdisplinary team of international scholars, this volume critically addresses the way in which cultural policy has evolved to the present, and develops new conceptual and theoretical perspectives for re-imagining cultural change and complexity. It offers an interesting set of studies on the impact of transcultural flows between some major European metropoles (such as Berlin, London and Paris) on the relatively closed realities of some other European capitals (such as Rome or Ljubljana), as well as on new cultural trends emerging in cities both at the heart and at the periphery of Europe (Vienna and Belgrade). Each contribution questions the relationship between cultural diversity, cultural policy and immigration. The book thus provides new insights on the limitations of a national framework for cultural policy and on the emerging transnational dynamics in European cities. (Font: Editor)

What are the key issues facing the makers of European cultural policy in the 21st century? How is cultural policy at the metropolitan, national and European levels addressing recent developments that are complicating the cultural and social realities of contemporary Europe?

This book offers an innovative assessment of these questions and aims to provoke debates about the way forward for cultural policy in Europe. Based on extensive theoretical and empirical research by an interdisplinary team of international scholars, this volume critically addresses the way in which cultural policy has evolved to the present, and develops new conceptual and theoretical perspectives for re-imagining cultural change and complexity.

It offers an interesting set of studies on the impact of transcultural flows between some major European metropoles (such as Berlin, London and Paris) on the relatively closed realities of some other European capitals (such as Rome or Ljubljana), as well as on new cultural trends emerging in cities both at the heart and at the periphery of Europe (Vienna and Belgrade). Each contribution questions the relationship between cultural diversity, cultural policy and immigration. The book thus provides new insights on the limitations of a national framework for cultural policy and on the emerging transnational dynamics in European cities. (Font: Editor)
