    Creating Critical Mass in Cultural Management Education: Learning From an Arts and Cultural Management Programme in Turkey.Serhan Ada - 2019 - Arts and Humanities in Higher Education 18 (2-3):159-177.
    If today the departments of “cultural management” have been in existence for almost four decades, it is in part because of the existence of the “cultural industries”. If this concept’s founder and critical theorist, Theodore Adorno, indeed stigmatised cultural industries as “predominance of profit … over culture”, how can the rise and importance of this academic field be accounted for? This article proposes to reconstruct, analytically, a narrative of the rise of arts and cultural management departments, established almost two decades (...)

    Cultural and Creative Industries in Modern Languages.Haili Ma - 2019 - Arts and Humanities in Higher Education 18 (2-3):216-230.
    This paper explores Cultural and Creative Industry teaching and curriculum development across disciplines, based on a case study of a newly established Cultural and Creative Industry programme at the School of Modern Languages, Cardiff University, UK. It illustrates how different academic values and goals influence styles of teaching and curriculum development, and it considers how this drives disciplinary evolution. As CCI increasingly attracts international students, in particular from China’s middle-class market, this paper questions the direct ‘import’ of western CCI for (...)

    The Politics of Temporal Sovereignty and the Subaltern MA.Jeremy Valentine - 2019 - Arts and Humanities in Higher Education 18 (2-3):99-119.
    This paper explains the emergence of an MA in Culture and Creative Enterprise at a Scottish University by locating it within a policy context characterised by the attempt of the Scottish Government to establish ‘temporal sovereignty’ through ‘fast policy’. The argument of the paper is that the MA is an outcome of the Scottish Government’s attempt to establish the sovereignty of a ‘future present’ over political and economic temporalities through the inscription of the figure of the entrepreneur in economic, educational (...)
