Overview

Miller (cultural policy and cultural studies, New York U.) and Yúdice (American studies, New York U.) define cultural policy as the "institutional supports that channel both aesthetic creativity and collective ways of life." They seek to describe the current state of the field at the general, international level and advocate for a particular theoretical and political orientation that sees social movements (rather than governments) as the primary loci for power, authorization, and responsibility in the realm of promoting progressive social change.
