Creative Economy and the Arts

Exploring and charting the term “creative economy” as it relates to arts policy, the art market, and urban development.

Global in scope, the Creative Economy and the Arts working group seeks to examine, through interdisciplinary discussion, the definition and application of the term “creative economy” as it relates to arts policy, the international art market, and urban development. The idea of creative economy relates to similar concepts, including creative industry and creative class, that have been, in the last fifteen years, taken up by governments throughout the world as a stimulant for economic development.

Filipino & Philippine Studies

Discussion of critical and emerging scholarship to unite the distinct fields of Filipino Studies and Philippine studies.

The Filipino & Philippine Studies Working Group provides a regular meeting space for graduate students and faculty to discuss critical and emerging scholarship in the fields. Often, Filipino Studies and Philippine Studies are conceived of as separate fields: the first is subsumed into ethnic or cultural studies, while the latter is incorporated in international area studies. This working group brings these seemingly disparate fields together, particularly through the organizers’ cross-disciplinary collaborations.
