Critical cultural policy studies : a reader / edited by Justin Lewis and Toby Miller

Lewis, Justin [ed.] | Miller, Toby [ed.].
ISBN: 0631223002 (pbk).Edition: 1st ed.Publisher: Malden, MA : Blackwell, cop. 2003Description: xi, 357 p.Summary: Critical Cultural Policy Studies: A Reader charts cultural policy as it exerts its powerful - if often overlooked - influence on every aspect of culture, from the fine arts to popular forms of entertainment. Key essays by pioneers in cultural policy studies combine with more recent reflections to define this important field and demonstrate the substantial role policy plays in the cultural production, from film, radio, and television to the Internet, the arts, music, and even sport. The volume explores a dazzling array of subjects from across the humanities and social sciences and around the globe: indigenous media, television and citizenship, film and government, museums, national cultures, suburban culture, international trade, and the shopping mall. Making the claim that no study of culture is complete without a thorough analysis of economic and political determinants, Critical Cultural Policy Studies offers a provocative view that culture is a very public - and very political - concern.

Critical Cultural Policy Studies: A Reader charts cultural policy as it exerts its powerful - if often overlooked - influence on every aspect of culture, from the fine arts to popular forms of entertainment.

Key essays by pioneers in cultural policy studies combine with more recent reflections to define this important field and demonstrate the substantial role policy plays in the cultural production, from film, radio, and television to the Internet, the arts, music, and even sport.

The volume explores a dazzling array of subjects from across the humanities and social sciences and around the globe: indigenous media, television and citizenship, film and government, museums, national cultures, suburban culture, international trade, and the shopping mall. Making the claim that no study of culture is complete without a thorough analysis of economic and political determinants, Critical Cultural Policy Studies offers a provocative view that culture is a very public - and very political - concern.
