Collected edition on cultural policy and professions- looking for a non Euro-American perspective/contribution
We are currently looking for contributors (1 or 2 chapters) for a collected edition on cultural policy and work. In particular, this call for publication seeks specifically contributions (case study, data, analysis) based on a non Euro-American perspective of arts and culture policy.
The purpose of this book is to explore and analyse the relationship between cultural policy and labour by focusing on the productive effects of cultural policies. The aim is to assemble original works that discuss cultural policy as a site and a tool of occupational and professional creativity. In other words, how have cultural policies created new occupations and shaped professional subjectivities? How are cultural policies producing and habilitating the production of different/new forms of culture-related agency?
The editor will select 1-2 chapters for publication. Chapters covering Asia, Africa and South-America are particularly welcome. Chapters documenting cases in Russia, Australia/NZ are also welcomed.
Contributors must send an abstract (200 words), with a title, and their affiliation and contact infos by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than April 27th 2011.
You can also contact the editor at the above mentioned e-mail adress for more details.
The contributors must also be aware that this collected edition is under strict publication deadlines, and if their proposal is selected, they must produce a first draft by early July of 2011.
