"Arts and creativity: working on identity and difference"

2016 ESA Conference in Portugal

The 9th midterm conference of the ESA Research Network Sociology of the Arts, 8th to 10th September 2016 at the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, University of Porto, focuses on arts and creativity, questioning the processes through which in an increasingly global, open, different and multicultu­ral world artistic creativity is (re)defined, fostered, evaluated and asserted. The relationship between arts and plural societies as well as the place and statute attributed to art by the new rhetoric of the creative agenda and the creative economy will be critically reflected.
