Understanding Cultural Industries

Lawrence, Thomas B. and Phillips, Nelson (2000) Understanding Cultural Industries. Journal of Management Inquiry, 11 (4). pp. 430-443.


In this article, the authors argue for more theoretical discussion and empirical research into the organizational and managerial dynamics of commercial cultural production. Their concern grows out of their observation that management research is neglecting cultural production as a serious object of investigation despite its economic, social, and political significance. Moreover, even when management researchers have studied cultural production, the distinctive characteristics and dynamics of cultural industries have largely eluded the traditional research approaches adopted. As a result, the unique dynamics of cultural production remain largely uninvestigated.
