Dr. Shoshanah Goldberg-Miller, assistant professor of arts administration, education and policy at Ohio State, specializes in creative economic development, culture policy, arts entrepreneurship, and nonprofit management. She examines the ways that cities use arts and culture in planning, fostering livable communities and creating economic development strategies to build their brand, attract residents and tourists, and distinguish themselves from other urban centers worldwide. Her book, Planning for a City of Culture: Toronto and New York (Routledge, Taylor & Francis, March 2017) brings a fresh new perspective to the study of creative cities by using policy theory as an underlying construct to understand the role of arts and culture in the transformation of Toronto and the revitalization of New York during the 2000s. This lecture is part of the Research Commons Faculty Forum Series.
Light refreshments will be served.
