Expanded Course Description
This course maps the concepts of “art world” and “creative sector” as they relate to each other generally and to the practice of arts administration specifically. We will explore cultural, political, economic, and technological facets of creative activity in social contexts, always seeking to understand how these factors inform the ways in which arts administrators serve communities through arts-based programming. The course will attend to both U.S. and international examples while seeking a balance of critical thinking and practical application of ideas. Ultimately, the course provides tools for students to identify art worlds and critically engage the factors that shape creative sectors.

This course satisfies the criteria for group status in Arts and Letters because it engages students in critical appreciation and use of core ideas in the field of arts management, and explores the ways in which creative practices, communities, and places intertwine. The course focuses on the theoretical perspectives and empirical studies of a broad swath of contemporary thinking and practice, and asks students to apply foundational concepts to the analysis of specific cases.
