We are pleased to invite you to submit a chapter for our book on the arts and business! This will be published by Routledge in 2016.
The book aims at bringing the arts and business scholars together in a dialogue about a number of key topics that today form different understandings in the two disciplines. The arts and business are often positioned as opposites. Where the one is providing symbolic and aesthetic immersion, the other is creating markets and goods. Yet they frequently deal with the same issues, framing it differently and constructing various solutions. The idea is that two authors, one from arts studies and the other from business studies, present, discuss and reflect on how each of these topics has been treated in their respective disciplines. We perceive each chapter as a dialogue (or the result of a dialogue) between two authors on this one specific issue of current social life. In bringing your two views together the chapter has a possibility to develop these into a coherent understanding of society, or expose them to critical differences, in bridging knowledge between the arts and business.
