PhD Research: Local context of clustering in cultural and creative industries: a case study of Taiwan

Summary of current doctoral research:

My doctoral research looks at local context of clustering of practitioners in cultural and creative industries. As major research focuses more on economic aspect of it and a growing body of research is looking at social dimension of clustering, my project focuses on cultural and social aspects of clustering by conducting three case studies in Taiwan, particularly with a case in an indigenous region.
