There will be a workshop “Temporary organizing and temporality: Stability and change in Cultural and Creative Industries” on 4-5 October 2018 in Lucca (Italy) and scholars are invited to submit proposals to be presented in the special sessions. The confirmed keynote speakers include Prof Robert DeFillippi (Suffolk University), Prof Jörg Sydow (Freie Universität Berlin) and Emanuele Vietina (Lucca Comics & Games), and we are inviting also experts from different fields, such as Massimo Osanna (Parco Archeologico di Pompei), Tamás Szucs (Principal Adviser – Cross-sectoral cooperation on future ET2020 and FP9) and Gerald Raunig (European Institute for Progressive Cultural Policies). Following the workshop, a book will prepared with the participants’ lectures, manuscripts and discussions.
The convenors have purposefully opted for a very broad theme, because they would like to bring together researchers and professionals from various fields (arts and heritage management, organization studies, economics, urban studies, cultural tourism etc.) to exchange ideas about temporary organizing and temporality in cultural and creative industries.
