on timely issues. Some of the sessions will focus on emerging creative industries in different countries and regions of the world. Final sessions will focus on cross-cutting issues (copyright legislation, digital technology, cultural diversity) as well as the common and particular features, patterns and trends of the creative industries. Concluding sessions will question policies and practices which contribute to encouraging creativity, cultural diversity and innovation in these areas of study. Course Description : In recent decades, the creative industries have been one the most rapidly growing sectors in the world economy, in an increasingly global and digital environment. This changing landscape raises new challenges for cultural professionals and policymakers. This course seeks to address sectorial (art market, publishing, performing arts, museums, heritage, music, ﬁlm industry, video games, etc.) and crosscutting issues which impact the different cultural industries. After setting a conceptual framework (key deﬁnitions and concepts, facts and ﬁgures), the courses will explore the common features and speciﬁcities of each creative sector from an international and comparative perspective. Each session will present an overview of the key stakeholders, the institutional, legal and economic framework, new business models and industry trends in a given sector. Illustrative case studies will provide concrete insights on timely issues. Students will gain a critical perspective on the policies and practices which favor cultural diversity, innovation and creativity in an environment marked by the concentration of ownership and the production of mainstream culture. Required reading : Readings will be provided during the course.
