Cultural Management Education in Risk Societies

Call for Contributions to Online Publication /encatcSCHOLAR

ENCATC's Annual Conference
Valencia, Spain, on 5-7 October 2016

ENCATC, the European Network on Cultural Management and Policy, is calling for contributions for its online publication, issue #07 of the /encatcSCHOLAR, which will focus - parallel to the topic of ENCATC's Annual Conference held in Valencia, Spain, on 5-7 October 2016 - on Cultural Management Education in Risk Societies. Ulrich Beck and others have already proposed in the eighties that in late modernity Western industrial societies are undergoing a process of transformation into risk societies. Traditional institutions are no longer able to respond to the fundamental global changes of society, like climate change, the financial crisis and/or terrorist attacks. The organisers want to explore what consequences risk society has for education in general and for cultural management education in particular.

/encatcSCHOLAR contributions are welcome on:

  • Profiles - intends to be a teaching tool for professors, useful in the classroom for presentations of the world's leading thinkers that have made important contributions to the development and professionalisation of cultural management, as well as those who have influenced the establishment of public policies;
  • Angles - should collect articles on connections of culture to other disciplines, focusing on discussing the challenges and opportunities that could arise from these interconnections, as well as highlighting innovative components that enrich and strengthen practice;
  • Case Analysis - are made up of case studies presented as a scholarly tool to illustrate situations where cultural managers are facing crossroads and need to analyze a variety of circumstances to make a well informed decision;
  • Interviews - tries to give a voice to leading people in Europe (managers, politicians, artists, ex commissioners, etc.);
  • Teaching-Experience - provides an opportunity for teachers to share in first person, practical ideas to meet their educational goals and to improve the teaching practice. The deadline for proposals is 10 December 2016.

Please send your proposal for contribution (max. 300 words) to scholars@encatc.org
