Call for Papers – Arts and Culture in East Asia: Creative Practices and Their Marketization in a Global Perspective

Contemporary East Asian societies have been a rich resource for sociological research, especially in the fields of politics and economics. However, sociologists have paid less attention to the arts and creative industries located in the East Asian context. Cultural products from East Asia, ranging from Japanese animation to K-pop and Chinese contemporary art, have gained global popularity over the past few decades. Though local art scenes possess distinct features as they are embedded in their historical and social contexts, they have also been increasingly globalized through technological developments and international collaborations. Such regional and global flows, as well as practices of producers, consumers and intermediaries in local cultural markets and creative industries, provide opportunities for empirical research and theory building.
