Once Upon an Arts Policy

6.30pm

Lectures

Public

Speaker: Dr Constance DeVereaux

Location: Room A130, College Building

The use of narrative analysis in policy science gained popularity in the 1990s but has been largely rejected by mainstream policy researchers working in a positivist vein. Narrative methods have been criticized for lack of rigor, clear hypothesis testing, and for difficulties of replication and falsification. Despite traditional social science's success in providing this rigor, its methods may come up short for use in cultural policy where analysts must account for the inherent messiness of culture. Drawing on her work with co-researcher Martin Griffin in their recent book Narrative, Identity, and the Map of Cultural Policy, Dr. Constance DeVereaux delineates a framework for use by cultural policy researchers with practical application to selected cultural policy issues. These include cultural citizenship and identity, cultural diplomacy, and the proliferation of formal cultural policy documents, which have been used-simultaneously-as articulations of value, as procedural documents, and (more recently) as branding and marketing tools. In so doing, this paper demonstrates the possibilities for application of narrative modes, tale types, and frameworks as a new set of tools for cultural policy analysts.

Registration opens at 6:00pm at the College Building Reception
