Interdisciplinary Elecitve Course
This course is designed to introduce the critical issues in relation to the formulation and implementation of cultural policy from a normative perspective. It will provide a broad but reasonably detailed examination of the central issues of moral philosophy, notably nature of responsibility, business ethics, legal ethics, and will also consider how these can be applied to several contemporary problems in relation to the operation, engagement and development of industries. By employing a comparative perspective, cultural, political, institutional, economic and societal factors leading to the similarities and/or differences in the foundation and practice of cultural policy are examined with reference to the selected countries/regions. Upon the completion of this course, students can and should be aware of the importance of morality in upholding professionalism, leadership, integrity, trust relations, diversify, fairness, and freedom of expression in the industries.
