Global Events Congress IV: Events and Festivals Research: State of the Art

The Global Events Congress IV: Events and Festivals Research: State of the Art taking place from 14-16 July 2010 at The Rose Bowl in Leeds.

There has been a massive growth of research relating to festivals and events over recent years. Much of this has been precipitated by, or has at least resonated with, a policy discourse that presents festivals and events as ‘good’ socio-culturally and economically.  There has also been an explosion of university courses. Events management programmes (including specialist provision concerned with the arts, culture or sport, for example) now proliferate internationally. Moreover, modules on festivals and events have become a common feature of tourism and related courses.

The assortment of recent research has drawn on a variety of disciplines and fields of study, such as sociology, economics, management, education, public policy, tourism, sport and leisure studies, planning, and environmental studies.

This conference will take stock and to add insight by enabling connections to be made between different aspects of the currently rather fragmented festivals and events research landscape. By bringing together the researchers from across the world, the event will encourage the creation of new research partnerships.

The deadline for Abstracts is Monday 18th January 2010.
