Welcome New Editors
Routledge is delighted to announce that a new Editorial Team for Cultural Trends will be stepping in from January 2020. The team includes:
Professor Ele Belfiore, Loughborough University, UK
I joined Loughborough in May 2016 from the University of Warwick, where I had been working since 2004. My PhD thesis (2006, Warwick) was a comparative study of post-1980s cultural policies in Italy and England and the growing prominence of an economic instrumental rationality in the development of arts and heritage policy in the two countries. Since then, I have developed further my exploration of discursive formations, and I have developed an international profile in policy sensitive research which combines a scholarly and critical drive with a commitment to facilitating public engagement with research and collaborations with non-academic partners, mostly from the cultural and creative sectors and from the third sector.
Professor Lisanne Gibson, University of Leicester, UK
I was awarded my PhD from Griffith University in Australia in 1999 - ‘Art and Citizenship: Governmental Intersections’ - in this and the subsequent monograph The Uses of Art I developed a Foucauldian analysis of the discursive relations between culture and government from the early nineteenth century to the present day, focusing on the history of museums and State funded cultural programs.
Dr Hye-Kyung Lee, King’s College London, UK
Hye-Kyung Lee joined King’s College London in September 2004 immediately after obtaining a PhD from the University of Warwick. She grew up in Seoul, South Korea, and studied Chinese language and literature at Seoul National University. Before coming to the UK for her MA and PhD studies, she worked as an international cultural exchange coordinator at the Korea Foundation and organised various performances, exhibitions and festivals in Korea and many Asian countries.
