    The course aims to introduce contemporary theories and research methods of media and cultural studies to study creative economy and cultural policy and practices. Case studies and empirical evidence will show how to link cultural practices to concepts and theories of creativity, digitization, acculturation, human capital, globalization and localization, which contribute to the growth of a creative economy. Various cultural policy models and their impacts on creative industries will be compared and contrasted with the objectives and responsibilities of different government agencies, non-governmental organizations and private foundations. The course will enhance students’ research and analytical abilities to prepare them to solve problems in creative arts production and management as well as to examine and evaluate cultural policy in relation to different creative production and consumption practices.

    The course covers the following topics:

    • Theories and research methods for media and cultural studies

    • An exploration of culture and policy in creative and cultural industries

    • Structure and agency in response to new technologies, new forms and new engagements

    • Creative economies, creative cities and creative class

    • The management and organization of creativity

    • Intellectual properties and creative commons

    • Identities and communities of creative consumption and industrial practices in the age of globalization and digitalization

    • Case studies and critical research analysis

    Assessment is based on students’ performance in the continuous assessment components including a class presentation (worth 30% of the total mark for the course), a term project (worth 30% of the total mark for the course) and a research paper and oral presentation (worth 40% of the total mark for the course). Students are required to submit assignments via the Online Learning Environment (OLE).
