Bringing together an enormous range of endeavours, the cultural and creative industries range from art, cinema, music, and fashion to curatorship, museum management, and heritage site revitalisation. Such endeavours are of great importance artistically, culturally and economically, so it is understandable that recent years have seen increasing attention on the Cultural and Creative Industries, both in teaching and research, in Higher Education institutions around the world. In response to this, the USC-SJTU Joint Institute of Cultural and Creative Industries in Shanghai is pleased to announce an international conference to explore the most recent developments in the field, at both national and international levels. Under the theme of “Collaboration and Competition”, we wish to call for a rethinking of the roles and methods of cultural production, and how they relate to current concerns about globalisation, and concurrent moves towards nationalism. In addition, our sub-theme for this conference, “Futures and Pasts” emphasises a pan-historical focus, and also seeks to facilitate dialogue among industry historians, theorists, and professionals.

 

The purpose of this conference is to bring together scholars and industry practitioners from a wide variety of disciplines and interests, with a view to establishing common ground in order to compare, exchange and develop new ways of researching, teaching, and working in the creative and cultural industries. We welcome abstracts for individual 20 minute presentations or panels consisting of three papers (in English) from scholars and practitioners working in any field of the cultural and creative industries. Please send abstracts and enquiries to icci-conf@sjtu.edu.cn by 24th February 2017. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
