Exploring Cultural Policy in an Era of Globalization

Exploring Cultural Policy in an Era of Globalization
April 9, 2013, 9am - 4pm
York University, McLaughlin College Senior Common Room (Rm 140)

This one-day student conference aims to explore the wider social and political implications of the expanding management of culture through policy and the evolving relationship between culture, policy and democracy. Papers will explore issues related to the use of culture as a policy resource for urban planning and development, the regulation of creativity through copyright policies, the ownership and control of Aboriginal cultural heritage, and the place of cultural policy in nation-building. 

This event is co-sponsored by McLaughlin College, the Department of Communication Studies and the York Centre for Public Policy and Law (YCPPL). For more information please see the YCPPL website.
