Cultural Trends Share your Research: Symposium on Program and Policy Evaluation in Cultural Affairs

Taylor & Francis

Decision-makers in the private and public sectors pursue desired outcomes for the creative industries, and the cultural sector in general, through various programs and policies. This puts great importance on empirical analyses of the success, or lack of success, in achieving those desired outcomes. Rigorous evaluation of programs and policies is essential in learning what interventions are more effective than others in achieving goals, the relative cost of programs relative to their outcomes, what are the unintended consequences of programs and policies, and ultimately in improving the efficacy of cultural policy.

This call for papers seeks original applications of program and policy evaluation in the creative industries and arts policy. Examples of topics (among many possibilities) include:

  • The effectiveness of ‘creative placemaking’ grants in generating local social and economic change;
  • Tax incentives for local clusters in creative industries;
  • Infrastructure investments to support the development of the creative industries;
  • Minimum standards for domestic content regulations in production and/or distribution of media;
  • Policies designed to increase levels of diversity in audiences, and within arts presenting organizations;
  • Arts education and arts participation;
  • The distribution of vouchers for arts consumption;
  • Tax incentives for charitable donations to the arts, in cash and in kind;
  • International ‘soft power’ cultural programs.

Papers are welcome from all countries (or involving international comparisons), and in all parts of the arts and creative industries.


Submission Instructions

A brief (single-page) abstract that states clearly the program or policy to be evaluated, the available data, and the method to be used should be sent to Michael Rushton of Indiana University at by September 30, 2018. Authors of selected proposals will be invited to share their research at a symposium to be held in the School of Public and Environmental Affairs at Indiana University, Bloomington Indiana, in Spring 2019, and will be considered for publication in a special edition of the journal Cultural Trends.

Special Issue of the Journal of Business Ethics

The Ethics of the Commons


Submission Deadline: 15 December 2018

Introduction to the Special Issue

The concept of ‘the commons’ has a long history (Sison & Fontrodona, 2012) and during the last three decades has generated increasing excitement in the scholarly literature. A major factor in the surge of interest has been the work inspired by Elinor Ostrom, Nobel memorial prize in economics sciences laureate for 2009, especially when linked to the economic and social crises that have fostered interest in different ways of organizing economic life. Recovering and implementing the concept of the commons has been hailed by scholars and practitioners as a way of creating new collective wealth (Akrivou & Sison, 2016; Bollier & Helfrich, 2014; Tedmanson et al., 2015), and for addressing what are seen as the societal ills created by neoliberalism (Caffentzis, 2010).


This is a call for submissions to a special issue of the Journal of Business Ethics aimed at providing an overarching perspective on the ethical dimensions and drivers of the phenomenon labelled ‘the commons’. In its broadest sense, ‘the commons’ is understood to refer simply to resources of many kinds, e.g., open access and public goods, where no individual person has the right to exclude others from enjoying their benefits. Ostrom focuses on the common property regime - a tighter concept of the commons wherein some group succeeds in making a ‘common pool resource’ a shared benefit by establishing the right of exclusion from it and managing it in a way that avoids the infamous ‘tragedy of the commons’ (Ostrom, 1990, 1999; Ostrom & Hess, 2008).  This special issue particularly welcomes more bounded conceptualization of the commons.
