Teaching cultural economics: The perspective of a decade

Bruce Seaman ()

Chapter 6 in Teaching Cultural Economics, 2020, pp 27-40 from Edward Elgar Publishing

Abstract: Based on teaching a course in cultural and entertainment economics over ten years, five distinguishing features are discussed: (1) how the goals and pedagogical approach were linked to the highly diverse composition of the student audience; (2) somewhat more ‘technical’ aspects of the analysis were not ignored, and were in fact sometimes emphasized; (3) sports was included as a part of the ‘entertainment’ sector, and clearly as part of the ‘cultural infrastructure’; (4) guest speakers were used who were linked to consulting experience in both the arts and sports; and (5) a term paper was required based on strong student interest in a particular topic covered in the course. Personal challenges and rewards are recounted, along with specific suggestions and examples regarding how to meet the challenges of teaching this important material.
