Culture Unbound Call for Abstracts

Deadline: November 15, 2012

How does sustainability manifest itself when examined from within the broad field of cultural economy? This is the pivotal question of this special issue of the Culture Unbound journal which seeks to examine the concept and identify tensions through different disciplinary lenses. By looking at how the three pillars of 'people, planet and profit' intertwine when opening up the concept of sustainability, we wish to capture and address the concept not as a coherent entity, but rather as multiple - as a matter of sustainabilities. We wish to interrogate manifold and disputed features, uses and manifestations of the notion, as well as its pliability and continuous reshaping.

The editors of this special issue invite you to take part in this endeavor by presenting cases and conceptual work that address sustainability in the cultural economy. Your contribution may be empirical or theoretical and could also contain methodological reflections on how to study sustainability.

Abstracts of a maximum of 300 words are welcome until November 15, 2012. Read more about the Call for Papers on the website of the Center for Leisure and Culture Research at

We look forward to hearing from you!
