*Description of the Conference and the Special Issue*

The conference seeks to investigate the changing nature of culture and its
industries brought on by globalization and digitization at national,
regional, and international contexts. Specifically, it looks at the way
governments, businesses, and industries respond to or interact within, the
changing nature of the culture and media markets where information
technology and social media alter the way content is being produced,
delivered, and consumed. From a broader perspective, this conference is an
opportunity to cultivate a network of researchers working on issues related
to today's cultural industries.

There will be two main themes:

1/ Globalization and culture

Over the past twenty years, cultural industries from different parts of the
world have expanded significantly across the globe. While this has brought
about opportunities for some, others face difficulties and are reluctant to
change. This theme aims to analyze the ways in which cultural industries
and national governments have responded to these current challenges, and to
new cultural production, promotion, and consumption.

2/ Digitization and culture

Digitization in the cultural industries has fundamentally changed the way
in which products are distributed and consumed. Those who have recognized
these changes early on and adapted accordingly have enjoyed great success.
This session will seek to assess various business, government, and/ or
third party responses to the dramatic changes brought on by digitization.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

• Impact assessment of globalization and digitization on culture and its

• The impact of the Internet and smart devices for culture and its

• Transnational collaborations in the digitalization and promotion of
cultural commodities

• Changes in demand and supply in the cultural industries

• Consumers’ reception and its fluctuation brought on by globalization
and/or digitization of culture

• The rise of social media as an important medium for transferring and
consuming culture

• Changes in government policies for promoting culture and its industries

• New generation/alternative models (including research methodology and
theory development) in globalization and digitization of culture

• Cultural-related business practices in the era of globalization and

• Comparative studies of cultural digitalization between countries
