Exploring Change from a Spatial Perspective
- Available for pre-order. Item will ship after November 4, 2021
Organizations in the creative and cultural sector are experiencing transformational change. This book offers a new way of exploring the transformational processes that creative and cultural organizations are going through, by focussing on their organizational space. By bringing together theoretical and empirical contributions from international scholars belonging to different fields of research, this collection provides readers with a multifaceted and comprehensive understanding of the changes creative and cultural organizations are facing.
By bringing together a range of international authors from many research fields, such as management, entrepreneurship, sociology, philosophy and anthropology, all of whom are specialists in the spatial study of cultural and creative organizations, this volume seeks to provide readers with a multifaceted, comprehensive understanding of the changes that creative and cultural organizations are facing, by exploring them from an original perspective: the spatial one. Thereby, it provides the foundations for developing a coherent research debate on the spatial dimension of creative and cultural organizations, leading to a new research agenda.
This book contributes to our understanding of the ‘space’ of the creative and cultural industries and will be useful reading for scholars involved in arts and cultural management in particular, as well as the social and human sciences more broadly. This book will inspire and inform researchers and managers who look with curiosity at the changes taking place in the creative and cultural sectors.
