CREATIVITY AND MEDIA CULTURE
Co-ordinator: Prof John Nguyet Erni
At the beginning of the 21st century more than half the world's population lives in cities: metropolitan regions, large and small, are undergoing dramatic transformation. In all their diversity and speed, these changes often neither originate in nor are limited to the Western world. Approaches to the urban that focus only on Western models of modernity and the effects of economic and social restructuring cannot do justice to the historically intricate nature of the urban cultures emerging today. The creative force of change now is found in public cultures situated in dynamic urban settings and brought into contact by global media industries, communication technologies and cultural economies of varying scale. Today, these worldly urban contact points' are catalysts for change and movement at all levels of society across the globe.
