REVEALING ALL 2: The second annual symposium for research students in
cultural policy and management

The Department of Cultural Policy and Management, City University
and the Department of Drama, MA Arts Management and Cultural Policy,
Goldsmiths College, University of London, are hosting the second annual research
student symposia. This will take place on 30 November 2007 in

The annual symposia is for research students from all UK
universities with a tradition of research in the fields of cultural policy and

The intention is to provide participating students with the
opportunity to network, collaborate and receive formal feedback from their peers. We
expect the symposium to focus on issues close to the hearts of
those who make cultural policy and promote its implementation in this
country. Papers should include analysis, primary research, comparative case
studies, models of policy-making, impact studies etc. Last year the event attracted a
number of individuals from government and independent agencies
concerned with arts policy who provided feedback on the papers presented.

We would like to invite abstracts from all research students who are
working in the field. If accepted, participants will be invited to
give a twenty minute presentation on an aspect of their research. The day
will open with a keynote presentation, followed by panels which will be
themed by research topics. These will be chaired by members of staff from
City and Goldsmiths. Feedback will be given by presenters’ peers and members of
staff present. We also propose publishing the papers presented at the
symposia, in City University’s newly re launched ejournal, Cultural
Policy, Criticism and Management, some of last years contributions are here
and more will follow soon. (

All students wishing to participate should send a 300 word abstract
with a title and their name, address, course, university and email on the
same page by 30th September 2007, addressed to Short
listing will take place between 2nd and 12th of October, and
participants will be notified if they are being invited to give a paper by 16th of
October 2007.

Details of the venue and symposium will be circulated by 30th
