“The Cultural and Creative Industries: A Review of the Literature,” by Justin O'Connor

We would like to draw your attention to a report entitled “The Cultural and Creative Industries: A Review of the Literature,” written by Justin O’Connor of the School of Performance and Cultural Industries at the University of Leeds. The author provides a thorough overview of literature that deals with the relationship between culture and economics.

This account takes a sixty-year trip from the “culture industry,” through the “cultural industries,” right up to the “creative industries.” It explores both the history of the idea of the cultural industries and how this has changed and developed the current interest in the creative economy. It focuses on the conceptual ideas behind thinking in this area and lays out the reasons behind the shifts in terminology and policy.
