AAG CFP: Spaces, politics and emotions of labor in creative economies

Call for papers: Spaces, politics and emotions of labor in creative economies
Annual conference of the AAG, Seattle, Washington, April 12-16, 2010
Organizer: Jessica R. Barnes, The Ohio State University

Geographers and regional planners have given much credence to “creative economy” focused schemes for urban development, particularly highlighting loose connections between arts and music and urban growth. Less attention has been given to the labor politics and emotions of people in arts and music occupations and how the everyday lives and livelihood strategies of these producers fit into the place making of the cities and regions trying to brand themselves as creative. This session explores what factors motivate and / or constrain people in arts occupations; how emotions impact art creation, distribution and consumption; how artists are compensated for their labor; and how artists’ labor creates value in communities. Contributions to this session are welcome from multiple conceptual and empirical perspectives that explore, but aren’t limited to: creative economies and critiques of that concept labor politics and emotions of arts occupations everyday lives and livelihood strategies of artists and musicians spatial and virtual strategies of art production, consumption, collaboration and distribution emotions of art production, consumption, collaboration and distribution connections between arts occupations and urban development exploring concepts of creative cities, how such places are experienced, and the labor involved

Please contact Jessica R. Barnes (barnes.418@osu.edu ) if you have questions, ideas, or to contribute to the session send an abstract of not more than 250 words by Monday, October 11th at 5 p.m.
