(En)gendered creativity. Actors Agencies Artifacts
n. 3/2014 - Edited by Alice Cati, Mariagrazia Fanchi and Rosanna Maule
Creative industries (an expression that replaces the traditional notion of “cultural industries” in present-day global economy) point at the persistence of gender imbalance in media organizations (as a European Community report has recently illustrated) and in professional contexts associated with them (Scott - Semmens - Willoughby, 2004).
This special issue of CS examines the many forms that gendered creativity assumes, especially in relation to the following questions:
- What are the hallmarks of "femininity" in cultural creativity? Can we identify distinctive qualities of “feminine poiesis” in media art and communication?
- What are the building strategies of gender differentiation in creative industries?
- What are the traits of gendered creativity in grassroots globalized activities?
- What is women’s contribution to the diversifying contexts of media economies and networks?
- How can we describe women’s "agency" in creative industries and other forms of creativity?
- What are the currency and the viability of feminist discourse and praxis in forms of entrepreneurship and professional agency based on digital and transmedia production and circulation?
- What is women’s contribution to the scholarship on creative industries? What is the role of feminist discourse in this literature?
