About this product
- DescriptionThe term 'two cultures' was coined more than 50 years ago by scientist and velist C.P. Sw to describe the divergence in the world views and methods of scientists and the creative sector. This divergence has meant that invation systems and policies have focused for decades on science, engineering, techlogy and medicine and the industries that depend on them. The humanities, arts and social sciences have been bit players at best; their contributions hidden from research agendas, policy and program initiatives, and the public mind. But structural changes to advanced ecomies and societies have brought services industries and the creative sector to greater prominence as key contributors to invation. Hidden Invation peels back the veil, tracing the way invation occurs through new forms of screen production enabled by social media platforms as well as in public broadcasting. It shows that creative workers are contributing fresh ideas across the ecomy, and how creative cities debates need reframing. It traces how policies globally are beginning to catch up with the changing social and ecomic realities. In his new book, Cunningham argues that the invation framework offers the best opportunity in decades to reassess and refresh the case for the public role of the humanities, particularly the media, cultural and communication studies disciplines.
