The Center for Arts and Culture, a Washington, DC based cultural policy research organization, will host a free public program called "Globalization is not always Americanization" from 3:30 - 5:00 p.m. on December 1st at the National Building Museum. A reception will follow. This program concludes this season's three-part Calling the Question series, "Globalization and its Impact on Culture."
The National Building Museum is located at 401 F Street, NW, Washington, DC.
The discussion will be framed by an examination of the publishing industry:
Corporate consolidation is often portrayed as a story of American control of global markets. The case of the publishing industry, however, may tell a different story. Many leading publishers in America are now owned by international companies headquartered outside the U.S. Does the experience of the publishing world have implications for the rest of the cultural sector?
The discussion will feature the following leaders in the publishing industry:
John Sargent, President of Holtzbrinck Publishers in America;
Patricia Schroeder, President and CEO of the American Associaion of Publishers and former U.S. Representative (D-Colorado);
Andre Schiffrin, Publisher of The New Press, a leading not-for-profit independent house.
As seating is limited, please call (202) 783-5277 to reserve. For further information about this event or the Calling the Question series, please contact Joy Austin at the Center for Arts and Culture. Phone: (@02) 78305277. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
