The 6th Nordic Conference on Cultural Policy Research - call for papers

The conference is in Copenhagen on August 14th - 16th 2013.

Welcome to NCCPR 2013

Cultural Policy in a Transformed Cultural Landscape

The conference will take place at Copenhagen Business School (CBS) and is organized in collaboration between CBS and Centre of Cultural Policy Studies at Education and Research in Library and Information Science (IVA).


The theme of the conference is Cultural policy in a transformed cultural landscape. The cultural sector is in motion. The classic cultural institutions are being redefined and new types of institutions have appeared. The mediatization, including social media, that blurs the boundaries between producers and consumers, have created new types of artists, new art forms, new arenas and new forms of cultural communication and identity formation. But how does cultural policy follow along? What do these transformations entail for cultural policy and the theoretical foundation of cultural policy? The current description of the cultural sector is complex. But have our knowledge followed along correspondingly? Or is cultural policy and cultural policy research at risk of being obsolete?

The 6th Nordic conference on cultural policy research will focus on the consequences of the mediatization and digitalization of culture with its diversity of forms and participation.

Suggestions for panels within the theme of the conference are welcome.

Furthermore, abstracts for papers in the following sub-themes or related themes are welcome:

  • Digital culture and cultural policy
  • Media and cultural policy
