Welcome on the official website of the ACEI2020
21st International Conference on Cultural Economics
June 30 – July 3, 2020
Preceding the main conference, a Young Researchers Workshop (YRW) will take place on June 30 : upload for submission here
The conference theme will be cultural policy with keynote presentations and special sessions bringing together cultural institutions and policy makers to discuss this hot topic. Issues discussed will include the impact of digitization on the cultural sector that has led to new products and ways of accessing and consuming cultural content as well as new business models and approaches to funding (e.g. public-private partnerships) which calls for re-thinking how cultural policy is approached to achieve its objectives. The fast changes characterizing the cultural sector call for new research in cultural economics to understand and provide guidance for cultural policy.
As usual the conference will welcome paper presentations from a broad range of topics relevant to cultural economics.
The following subject areas are intended to be illustrative of possible topics that might be considered, but other topic areas relevant to the arts and culture are also welcome:
cultural consumption and participation
creative cities and urban development
cultural entrepreneurship and business
economics of copyright
economic aspects of design
economic history of arts and culture
cultural and creative industries
international trade in art and culture
culture and sustainable development
artists’ labour markets
arts and cultural organizations
funding the arts
valuing the arts and culture
Scholars who wish to organize a contributed session or a panel discussion are also encouraged. They should send their proposal by email (PDF-format) before January 31st, 2020 to ACEI President Elect and Chair of the Scientific Committee ACEI2020, Professor Trine Bille at firstname.lastname@example.org.
