Dr. Shoshanah Goldberg-Miller (PhD, The New School) specializes in creative economic development, cultural policy, arts entrepreneurship, and nonprofit management. She examines the ways that cities use arts and culture in planning, fostering livable communities and creating economic development strategies to build their brand, attract residents and tourists, and distinguish themselves from other urban centers worldwide. This lecture is part of the Research Commons Faculty Forum Series. Light refreshments will be served.
Her book, Planning for a City of Culture: Creative Urbanism in Toronto and New York (Routledge, Taylor & Francis, March 2017) brings a fresh perspective to the study of creative cities by using policy theory as an underlying construct to understand the role of arts and culture in the transformation of Toronto and the revitalization of New York during the decade of the 2000s. Dr. Goldberg-Miller is Assistant Professor in the Department of Arts Administration, Education, and Policy and Affiliate Assistant Professor of City and Regional Planning in the Knowlton School of Architecture, The Ohio State University.
