This module explores the impact of globalisation on the arts, including music, literature, visual culture and museums. It will look at the interdependence of economic, social and artistic practices and consider the challenges that globalisation poses to local and indigenous arts, as well ways in which the arts have contributed to the processes of globalisation. It will also examine the legal contexts of ownership of works of art, intellectual property and ‘sampling’, and the digital futures of the arts.
