Shoshanah B.D. Goldberg-Miller

Assistant Professor
The Ohio State University

Dr. Goldberg-Miller examines how cities use arts & culture in planning, fostering livable communities and creating economic development strategies to build their brand, attract residents and tourists, and distinguish themselves from other urban centers worldwide. She brings a new, fresh perspective to the study of creative cities by using policy theory as an underlying construct to understand the role of arts & culture and the creative sector in the transformation of our global urban experience.


Goldberg-Miller has published in Cities: The International Journal of Policy and Planning; Artivate: A Journal of Entrepreneurship and the Arts and Journal of Enterprising Culture, and has co-authored a chapter in Creating Cultural Capital. Dr. Goldberg-Miller is Assistant Professor of Arts Administration, Education & Policy at The Ohio State University, and Affiliate Assistant Professor of City and Regional Planning in the Knowlton School of Architecture, and serves as Academic Advisor to the City of Toronto’s Department of Economic Development and Culture.

Prior to joining the OSU faculty in Autumn 2014, she taught at The New School, Hunter College, and Columbia University. An experienced fundraiser, Goldberg-Miller was on the executive team at The Paley Center for Media, American Cancer Society, Greenwich House Pottery, March of Dimes, American Museum of Natural History, and Museum of Holography.
