Preliminary program available: EBHA 2019 (29th-31st, August) The Business History of Creativity

The preliminary program for EBHA The Business History of Creativity is available at https://www.eur.nl/en/eshcc/research/ebha2019/congress-programme

During this congress we will explore the impact and the implementation of this policy instrument on a local, national and supranational level. We also aim to historicize the concept and explore the historical roots of the creative industries, analysing different sectors, including art markets, film, fashion, radio, television, music, design, theatre, tourism and video games. Other topics we aim to address include how creativity can be defined and how this links to the concept of creative industries. Not only does creativity matter to its namesake industries, but also to most sectors of national and international economies. It forms the basis of innovation and firm competitiveness. Innovation, creativity, and the creative industries are closely linked concepts. The creative industries are based on creativity, skills, and talent, and the potential for wealth and job creation through the development of intellectual property. Nevertheless, creativity, creative industries and entrepreneurs are under-researched topics in business history.

Keynote speakers in Rotterdam are Senior Curator Victoria Broackes and Professor Joel Mokyr https://www.eur.nl/en/eshcc/research/ebha2019/keynote-speakers
