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 course seeks to address sectorial (art market, publishing, performing arts, museums, heritage, music, ﬁlm industry, video games, etc.) and cross-cutting issues which impact the different cultural industries.

Illustrative case studies will provide concrete insights on timely issues. Students will gain a critical perspective on the policies and practices which favour cultural diversity, innovation and creativity in an environment marked by the concentration of ownership and the production of mainstream culture.
