Imagine.. Seminar with Barbara Slavich: What’s in a Name? Giving Form and Meaning to a New Culinary Category

Abstract: This study examines how a new category gains form and meaning in the presence of multiple logics, competing labels, and multiple modes of sensegiving and sensemaking. We analyze the work of four emblematic chefs associated with the emerging category of ‘molecular gastronomy’ from 1995 to 2015: Grant Achatz, Ferran Adrià, Heston Blumenthal, and Massimo Bottura. We show that category formation is a circular and iterative process, consisting of three sub-processes that take place recurrently until its stabilization: creation of innovative work, contestation emerging from the misinterpretation of innovators’ efforts, and consolidation of the meanings and practices associated with the new category. Our study reveals that a new category’s label that is in opposition with the intended meaning of the creators can nonetheless bring that category forward by triggering creators’ engagement in politics of meaning. We conclude by discussing implications of our work and outlining future research directions.

"The Invention of a Festival in a World Heritage Site: Logic, Actors, Action" with Carmelo Mazza

 

A World Heritage site is a perfect object to study how arts and management may collide. On one side, UNESCO sets significant constraints and demanding goals engaging both cultural organizations and local administration. On the other side, expectations of increased revenues from tourism rise the need of proper site management.

"How Are You, My Dearest Mozart? Well-being and Creativity of Three Famous Composers Based on their Letters" with Karol Borowiecki, Associate Professor at the Department of Business and Economics, University of Southern Denmark

 

Abstract: The importance of creativity is being increasingly recognized by economists, however the possibility that emotional factors determine creative processes are grossly ignored. Building on 1,400 letters written by three famous music composers, I obtain well-being indices that span their lifetime. The validity of this methodology is shown by linking the indices with biographical information and through estimation of the determinants of well-being. I find, consistent with the psychological economics literature, that work-related engagements and accomplishments are positively related with well-being, while poor health or death of a relative are detrimental. I then exploit the data and provide quantitative evidence on the existence of a causal impact of negative emotions on outstanding creativity, an association hypothesized across several disciplines since the Antiquity; however, not yet convincingly established for the case of extraordinary achievers.

Dr Borowiecki is an Associate Professor at the Department of Business and Economics at the University of Southern Denmark. He holds a PhD in Economics from Trinity College Dublin, where he has been also serving as an Adjunct Lecturer and Academic Coordinator. His research interests are mainly in economic history and cultural economics and also touches on urban economics (creative clusters) and labor economics (especially migration of creative people).

"Game Changer: The Topology of Creativity in Video Game Development" with David Stark

 

Network research suggests that a team topology balancing familiarity (via cohesion) and diversity (via brokerage) is the key to success. We go beyond the duality of brokerage and closure by adopting the concept of structural folding – the generative tension in overlapping cohesive groups. In elaborating the causal mechanisms at work in structural folding, we hypothesize that the effects of structural folding on inventiveness and on creative success are especially strong when overlapping groups are cognitively distant.

Teams are most likely to produce game changing creative success when their cognitively heterogeneous communities have points of intersection. We draw on work on topologies of knowledge in the field of semiotics to conceptualize the role of folding in channeling and mobilizing the productive tension of cognitive distance. To test our hypothesis about structural folding and cognitive distance, we study the historical mechanisms of team reassembly in the video game industry. We collected data on 12,094 video games that were produced from the inception of the industry in 1979 to 2009. Because we measure inventiveness independently from critical success, we can test whether teams with structural folds that span cognitively distant communities are able to develop distinctive products that are, at the same time, recognized as successful in the video gaming field.

David Stark took his Ph.D. at Harvard and is today Arthur Lehman Professor of Sociology and International Affairs at Columbia University where he directs the Center on Organizational Innovation. At present he is Visiting Professor at the Department of Organization at Copenhagen Business School. His most recent book, The Sense of Dissonance: Accounts of Worth in Economic Life, was published by Princeton University Press in 2009.  Stark studies how organizations and their members search for what is valuable.

"Interpretive Mediation in Museums: Introduction of a new digital tool in the French musée du quai Branly" with Sylvian Colombero

 

Grounded in institutional theory, my research focuses on how a higher status organization in the field of cultural institutions adopts and uses a digital innovation. I present a pilot study of the musée du quai Branly in Paris, which exhibits non-Western arts, focusing on the modern and digital audioguide tool, which mediates between exhibition pieces and visitors. The mediation allowed by this innovation remains controversial in relation to these unusual masterworks and their interpretations. Through an analysis of micro processes, I show how internal controversies manifest in the current business model that underpins the introduction of the audioguide, including the value of mediation desired by the museum. I conclude by exploring the use of bricolage as a way to better implement the digital innovation via the business model. Sylvain Colombero is a PhD student at Centre de Gestion Scientifique at Mines ParisTech.

"What’s good? Profession meets management in news(paper or web?)’s newsrooms" with Elena Raviola

 

My research focuses on the news field, investigating in particular how traditional newspaper organization cope with technological changes. Building on institutional theory as well as science and technology studies, I have investigated how journalistic professional norms, practices, and boundaries are created and recreated with different work technologies. In this presentation, I will present my studies at Il Sole-24 Ore, the largest Italian financial newspaper, Göteborgs-Posten, the fourth Swedish newspaper, and Rue89, an online-online news website started in 2007. Across these studies I will focus on the changing and not-changing aspects of the relationship between journalism and management.
 
Elena is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Organization at Copenhagen Business School. She completed her PhD in Business Administration at Jönköping International Business School. Her research focuses on media, and on how news media organize their production across different technologies.

"Dancing around a cultural site: Context, actors and the (invented) tradition of a festival" with Carmelo Mazza - THE EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED

 

A cultural site is a perfect object to study how arts and management may collide. Within the New Institutional approach to organizations studies, competing or multiple institutional logics have been largely referred as triggers for these clashes (Greenwood and Suddaby, 2006; Thornton, Ocasio and Lounsbury, 2012). Variety of strategic action by the professional groups, leading to different institutional work (Lawrence and Suddaby, 2006; Lawrence, Suddaby and Leca, 2009), have been also referred upon as a key factor explaining conflicts.
Those approaches tend to investigate contexts where well established professional groups are in action. This is very often the case of well acknowledged cultural settings. In this paper, I propose to look at a different context where weak ties among loosely coupled cultural organizations, local administration and other local actor prevail: the Basilica di San Michele Arcangelo at Monte Sant’Angelo (Apulia, Italy) in 2011 included in UNESCO World Heritage List (WHL). Including a site in UNESCO WHL can be a main institutional accomplishment for a small village in the South of Italy. It also requires a novel attention to cultural projects and events and a new model of partnership among local administrations and cultural institutions. In this paper, I use the inclusion within WHL as the arena where relations among existing institutional actors in cultural field are reconfigured and new institutional actors emerge, get institutionalized and become a tradition.
In particular, I focus my research attention on the institutional logics and institutional works paving the way to the emergence of a novel cultural organization that became in a few years the champion of the new cultural projects and events in WHL site. It is the case of the rise and transformation of a local festival, FestambienteSud, organized by the nation-wide green organization Legambiente, turning into the key cultural event of the territory. I claim that this peculiar empirical analysis may help shed light on some interesting dynamics in the management of cultural organizations.
First, it shows how the need for cultural heritage management (triggered by UNESCO WHL process) is a potential factor for field transformation. In the case of Monte Sant’Angelo, it clearly works as a (cultural) jolt (Greenwood and Suddaby, 2006) opening space for new projects and events. Second, it accounts for the emergence of a new cultural institution marking a discontinuity with the previous models of relation with local administrations. In the case of FestambienteSud, the cultural event developed as a platform above and beyond local politics and funding constraints although fully rooted in Monte Sant’Angelo identity. Third, it narrates how a multi-disciplinary artistic festival became a tradition (Hobsbawm and Ranger, 1978) by meeting the emergent institutional logics underpinning the WHL inclusion.

His core teaching focus in organizational behaviour is about power & politics dynamics within organizational decision making contexts.

Center for Leisure and Culture Services at INT presents a seminar with Brian Wheeller

Brian Wheeller holds degrees in Economics, in Applied Economics, in the Economic Impacts of Tourism, and in American Studies. His doctorate on Critiquing Eco/Ego/Sustainable Tourism contextualises the debate within the wider arena of tourism planning and management, policy and practice. In addition, his interests have evolved and broadened over the years, his current research revolving around the links between travel, tourism and popular culture - in particular literature, art, photography, film, music - and their relevance to contemporary tourism thinking.

Seminar by Amelie Boutinot

Reputation-building is a difficult process, but one that is vital to survive and improve career paths in creative industries. One reason artists face difficulties is that reputation-building may lack of clarity in the relationships between the various and apparently distinct kinds of reputation an artist can have. This paper suggests understanding better the way several kinds of reputations are built and combined in creative industries. Our structural model results, based on a sample of 103 contemporary French architects, indicate that the specific reputations an artist can acquire are inter-constituted and interact with each other. Thanks to our empirical study, we contribute to reputation and creative industries literatures.

Seminar by Lasse Steiner

The artistic labor market is marked by several adversities, such as low wages, above-average unemployment, and constrained underemployment. Nevertheless, it attracts many young people. The number of students exceeds the available jobs by far. A potential explanation for this puzzle is that artistic work might result in exceptionally high job satisfaction, a conjecture that has been mentioned at various times in the literature.

Den nye generation i dansk mode

Workshhop I: Modebranchens finansielle vilkår efter krisen
 
Wednesday, January 15, 2014 - 08:30 to 12:30

KAN VI TALE OM EN NY GENERATION I DANSK MODE?

En række forhold og udviklinger i de senere år – f.eks krisens effekt på kredit- og finansieringsvilkår, vækstmulighederne i fjerne markeder, et presset detail-led, den vedvarende digitale revolution, samt global produktion og sourcing – har i hvert fald ændret betingelserne for dansk mode fundamentalt og uigenkaldeligt. Dette stiller krav til nytænkning og nye kompetencer blandt modeiværksættere -og vækstvirksomheder, og ikke mindst skarpere fokus på det forretningsmæssige. I en serie af workshops over det næste halve år, vil vi udforske vilkårene og muligheder for den nye generation i dansk mode igennem at samle og dele modevirksomheders og andre brancheaktørers erfaringer og viden, og skabe et forum for samarbejde og kompetenceudvikling, der kan være med til at skabe bedre betingelser og nye muligheder for dansk mode.

Den første workshop tegner et billede af modebranchens økonomiske og finansielle situation, herunder de udfordringer iværksætter -og vækstvirksomheder inden for mode står overfor, i forbindelse med finansiering og samarbejde med pengeinstitutter og investorer.

Seminaret afholdes på Kilen i lokale KS043 i tidsrummet 08.30 - 12.30

6th Nordic Conference on Cultural Policy Research – NCCPR 2013

The conference will take place August 14-16 at Copenhagen Business School (CBS). It is organized in collaboration between CBS and Centre for Cultural Policy Studies at the Royal School of Library and Information Science (IVA)

Theme: Cultural Policy in a Transformed Cultural Landscape

The cultural sector is in motion. The classic cultural institutions are being redefined and new types of institutions have appeared. The mediatization, including social media, that blurs the boundaries between producers and consumers, have created new types of artists, new art forms, new arenas and new forms of cultural communication and identity formation. But how does cultural policy follow along? What do these transformations entail for cultural policy and the theoretical foundation of cultural policy? These changes are the theme for the 6th Nordic conference on cultural policy research that will focus on the consequences of the mediatization and digitalization of culture with its diversity of forms and participation.

The purpose of the conference is to gather researchers as well as cultural policy administrators from the Nordic countries to discuss cultural policy research and practice.

At the conference about 50 research papers will be presented.

Key note speakers:
•    Professor Bruno S. Frey, University of Warwich: How the internet may affect the arts and cultural policy

•    Associate Professor Peter Duelund, University of Copenhagen: Nordic Cultural Policy at the dawn of the 21th century: Imaginations, trends and new challenges

Panel discussion on cultural policy research and practice:
•    Panel participants: Stig Hjarvard, Sigrid Røyseng, Ole Marius Hylland, Ellen Aslaksen, Leif Jakobsson, Mikael Schultz

imagine .. is co-organising the conference: Creativity from a Global Perspective: An International Conference on the Creative Industries from October 18 – 20 2010

The pursuit of the creative industries is no longer limited to the developed world. Emerging markets and the developing world are also engaged in promoting various creative industries. While brick and mortar remain important, policy makers are aware that innovation and creativity are significant economic driving forces both now and in the future. Creative industries prize ideas and knowledge, translating creativity into economic value. Creative activities take on a spectrum of guises, ranging from films and paintings to city branding and new media development.

The creative industries as areas of research are also getting popular. This conference gathers researchers from around the world to discuss and further their knowledge on the creative industries. Shanghai is the perfect setting. It will host Expo 2010 and is a highly vibrant, rapidly growing city. During this conference, participants will not only experience aspects of Shanghai but also visit creative industry sites and companies.

Creative Encounters: New European Fashion Centres, Dreams of Small Nations in a Polycentric Fashion System

Wednesday, 20 January, 2010 - 09:00 to 17:00

While the world cities of fashion – Paris, London, Milan, New York and Tokyo – have been studied in detail, research on fashion in small nations in Europe have rarely found an audience beyond the nation. However, in recent years designers from a number of small countries have made an impact on international fashion, for example, the Antwerp Six from Belgium and Victor and Rolf from Holland. When we look closer we find in many small European countries the explicit dream to be renowned international fashion centre. These dreams are formulated jointly by national industries, fashion designers, design schools, governments and not least the press.

At the conference, New European Fashion Centres at Copenhagen Business School, the aim is to map out and discuss how this ‘second-tier’ of fashion nations is constituted and how it changes the way in which fashion works as a polycentric global fashion system.

Creative Encounters at Copenhagen Business School invites you to learn more on this topic by joining the open conference where you will meet international fashion scholars presenting and discussing cases such as Irish fashion, Portuguese fashion, Dutch fashion, Icelandic fashion and Danish fashion. The conference is concluded by a reception where it is possibility to meet and talk to the invited scholars.

There will be held a reception from 16:30-17:00 in Kilen's main hall.
