This subject explores the range of sectors that have come to be known as ‘creative industries’, interrogating how these are linked as well as the unique social, political, cultural and economic factors inherent in each. The creative industries investigated include design and the visual arts, architecture, music and the performing arts, advertising and marketing, digital and interactive media, print and broadcast media. Students will examine the particularities of each industry’s history of production, consumption, regulation and representation whilst understanding the policy developments that have identified them as ‘creative industries’ in government and industry lexicon.
