Following on from the amazing experience that was the CCI Winter School, we decided it was time for a change of temperature and switched it up by travelling to Toronto for the Oxford Internet Institute’s Summer Doctoral Programme (OII SDP).
Professor Towse's talk is about the developments in cultural economics and its contribution to understanding the impact of digitization in the creative industries. She will discuss the contents of her forthcoming edited Handbook on the Digital Creative Economy with Christian Handke. For those interested in attending, we suggest the following article as background reading: Cultural Economics and The Internet by Christian Handke, Paul Stepan and Ruth Towse, which is a preliminary version of a chapter forthcoming in: Latzer, M. and J. M.

Will online subscription music services like Spotify render traditional music distribution models obsolete?
Join Dr Patrik Wikstrom on 23 August for a look at the future of the music industry in an age of digital distribution.
Dr Patrik Wikstrom will argue that ‘context based’ services that allow people to ‘do things’ with music have greater potential to create economic value than services that merely provide access. This has important implications for the production and distribution of music.
