This course will examine a specific topical cultural policy issue germane to the MAM curriculum. The choice of topic will be based on current events and policy decisions that affect arts and culture. The area of inquiry may be national or international in nature and could affect a single community or an entire continent.
The issues and subject matter chosen will include policy decisions made at all levels, including country, state and local governments, arts and culture organizations and service providers, as well as policies that evolve upward from within communities.
Class meetings will feature a mixture of guest speakers and lecture discussion or research presentations by students.
