Call for contributions to the /encatcSCHOLAR

Today ENCATC has launched a call for contributions for its online publication /encatcSCHOLAR. Born in 2013 to satisfy the demand of ENCATC members -  who are academics, researchers, trainers and their students to exchange teaching methodologies and knowledge to use in the classroom. 

/encatcSCHOLAR is intended to provide reference tools for education and lifelong learning on cultural management and cultural policies. We are now launching a call for contributions for issue #07 of the /encatcSCHOLAR, which will be published in March 2017. This issue will focus parallel to the topic of ENCATC’s 24th Annual Conference (Valencia, 5-7 October 2016) on “Cultural Management Education in Risk Societies”.

Ulrich Beck and others have already proposed in the eighties that in late modernity Western industrial societies are undergoing a process of transformation into risk societies. Traditional institutions are not able anymore to respond to the fundamental global changes of society, like climate change, the financial crisis and/or terrorist attacks. We want to explore what consequences risk society has for education in general and for cultural management education. Please check the Annual Conference information for a more detailed description on the topic.

More specifically, contributions will be welcome for the following sections:

  •      Profiles intends to be a teaching tool for professors, useful in the classroom for presentation of the world’s leading thinkers that have made important contributions to the development and professionalization of cultural management, as well as those who have influenced the establishment of public policies (their main conceptual approaches, major publications, biographical references, etc.).
  •     Angles should collect articles on connections of culture to other disciplines, focusing on discussing the challenges and opportunities that could arise from these interconnections, as well as highlighting innovative components that enrich and strengthen practice.
  •        Case Analysis are made up of case studies presented as a scholarly tool to illustrate situations where cultural managers are facing crossroads, and need to analyze a variety of circumstances to make a well informed decision.
  •      Interviews tries to give a voice to leading people in Europe (managers, politicians, artists, ex commissioners, etc). At the end of the interview, the interviewee raises some questions to the readers to encourage discussion and to activate critical thinking on the topics that have been presented.
  •       Teaching-experience provides an opportunity for teachers to share in first person, practical ideas to meet their educational goals and to improve the teaching practice.
