Cool, creative and egalitarian?

Gill, R.
Information, Communication and Society

The new media industries are popularly regarded as cool, creative and egalitarian. This view is held by academics, policy-makers and also by new media workers themselves, who cite the youth, dynamism and informality of new media as some of its main attractions. This paper is concerned with what this mythologized version of new media work leaves out, glosses over and, indeed, makes difficult to articulate at all. Themes include pervasive insecurity, low pay, and long hours but the particular focus of the paper is on gender inequalities in new media work. Despite its image as 'cool', non-hierarchical and egalitarian, the new media sector, this paper will argue, is characterized by a number of entrenched and all too old-fashioned patterns of gender inequality relating to education, access to work and pay. Moreover, a number of new forms of gender inequality are emerging, connected - paradoxically - to many of the features of the work that are valued - informality,autonomy,flexibility and so on. Drawing on a study of 125 freelance new media workers in six European countries, this paper explores these issues and argues that the new forms of sexism in new media represent a serious challenge to its image of itself as cool, diverse and egalitarian.

Economics and Culture

Throsby, D.
Cambridge UP

In an increasingly globalised world, economic and cultural imperatives can be seen as two of the most powerful forces shaping human behaviour. This book considers the relationship between economics and culture both as areas of intellectual discourse, and as systems of societal organisation. Adopting a broad definition of culture, it explores the economic dimensions of culture, and the cultural context of economics. The book is built on a foundation of value theory, developing the twin notions of economic and cultural value as underlying principles for integrating the two fields. Ideas of cultural capital and sustainability are discussed, especially as means of analysing the particular problems of cultural heritage, drawing parallels with the treatment of natural capital in ecological economics. The book goes on to discuss the economics of creativity in the production of cultural goods and services; culture in economic development; the cultural industries; and cultural policy.

From Cultural to Creative Industries: Theory, Industry, and Policy Implications

Cunningham, S.
Quarterly Journal of Media Research and Resources

The paper will present a rationale for distinguishing between notions of cultural and creative industries which have implications for theory, industry and policy analysis. I do this from the standpoint of a researcher and analyst and also from a position of a corporate involvement in a substantial project to grow and diversify a regional economy through the development of its creative industries.

Kulturarvet som resurs för regional utveckling

Nilsson, M.,
Lindquist, S.O.,
Elfström, B,
Paju, M; Braunerhjelm, L. Grundberg, J.

Denna skrift utgör resultatet av ett seminarium ”KULTURARVET SOM RESURS FÖR REGIONAL UTVECKLING” som CERUM arrangerade i samarbete med Riksantikvarieämbetet den 16. maj 2002. Seminariet utgör en del i det forskningsprojekt med samma rubrik, som Riksantikvarieämbetet initierade 2001. Arbetet med seminariet har stärkt vår uppfattning om värdet av ett utbyte mellan olika forskningsinriktningar och regelbunden redovisning av empiriskt material. Målsättningen är att tillföra och utveckla hypoteser som kan stärka teoribildningen på området. Rapporten redovisar ett antal studier som ger läsaren en orientering över svenska arbeten och resultat samt möjliga forskningsinriktningar i framtiden.

Kulturarvet som resurs för regional utveckling - En kunskapsöversikt

Weissglas, G.,
Paju, M.,
Westin, L.,
Danell, T.

Rapport från Riksantikvarieämbetet 2002:1. Begreppen kulturarv, tillväxt och utveckling används ofta i regionalpolitiska styrdokument. Samtidigt är de långt ifrån entydiga och bidrar till osäkerhet när sambanden mellan kulturella tillgångar och tillväxt ska definieras. Kulturarvssektorn behöver därför ett bättre kunskapsunderlag om regional utveckling och tillväxt. Det är en av slutsatserna.
