CAPCULT

Capitalizing culture. Transnational Re-articulations of Economy and Culture  

The project is tracing the mechanisms of cultural capitalization and re-articulations of economy and culture through several cases. The cases include national branding, the transnational circulation of the term ‘cool’ in national branding, shifting boundaries of the public domain, capitalization of yoga,  cultural statistics, creative industries and creative labour. The three-year (2010–2012) project is funded by the Academy of Finland.

Although based in Tampere, the research group consists of participants working in five universities and two national research organizations, one of which is based in London.
