The University of Kentucky will host the 37th annual Social Theory, Politics, and the Arts (STPA) Conference entitled “Cultural Policy and Arts Management in the 21st Century: Changes and Continuities” from October 13 to 17.
The conference will tackle the following questions: How will the arts adapt to a new reality? How will policy decisions affect the arts and artists? What are policy alternatives for the arts community? How are art institutions and artists adapting to new infrastructure? What continuities will remain in the 21st century? How are trends and forces developing in the United States and other countries?
Proposals that address this theme from a variety of perspectives as either an individual presentation or a panel discussion are particularly welcome. In addition, proposals that address the broader scope of issues affecting cultural policy, policy actors, and art and art making will also be accepted.
STPA is an interdisciplinary gathering of researchers, policy makers, practitioners, and students that explores key trends, practices, and policy issues affecting the arts around the world.
Deadline for submissions: April 22, 2011
