Cultural Management and the Discourse of Practice

Abstract

Cultural management, like many other fields that have emerged over the past several decades – women’s studies, leadership studies, information science, digital humanities, cultural studies, to name a few – has been described as a field of inquiry rather than as a discipline in its own right. More than a mere hybrid (i.e. the combined study of culture and management), cultural management is broadly interdisciplinary by nature. It straddles, sometimes uncomfortably, the boundaries between the social sciences, the humanities, management, and the arts, neither accepting a place, nor fully accepted – in many universities – squarely within the camp of any one of these disciplines.
