Presenting concepts, knowledge and institutional settings of arts management and cultural policy research, this book builds on two assumptions that are simultaneously propositions. The first is that arts management research and cultural policy research evolve in an academic space that is very loosely connected, but nevertheless federated. The second is that we evolve in a field where there is a greater diversity of knowledge producers than it is often assumed. Practicing outside academia, many arts managers, policymakers, advocates, and other professionals still connect and mediate knowledge in spaces that are interconnected, and perhaps even more integrated than we would readily admit. This book offers a map, a representation of the concepts and spaces of knowledge production in the field. It constitutes an excellent introduction to students, and scholars and practitioners will find in it a renewed representation of the field and the seeds of an intellectual debate on our research community.
