The Changing Nature of Doctoral Education in Arts Management and Cultural Policy in the US and Europe
Richard Maloney, Lluis Bonet, Francois Colbert, Gerald Lidstone

In light of the unique opportunity presented by the 2017 AAAE conference to utilize a comparative approach to discuss topics of interest, I am proposing a session that examines the changing nature of doctoral education in cultural management and cultural policy from two perspectives: the US and Europe. Keeping in mind the ongoing demographic and technological revolution in higher education, the panel will discuss two specific areas of concern: 1) pedagogical issues -- are we teaching the "right" topics?; have we recently changed how we teach our students? -- and 2) structural concerns -- are our programs properly organized to meet the needs of today’s students?; has the emergence of "nontraditional" education models (professional doctorates, online learning, and "executive style" education) impacted how we run our programs?; are we adequately preparing our students for the realities of the job market?. Europe will be represented by: Lluis Bonet (University of Barcelona), Francois Colbert (HEC), and Gerald Lidstone (Goldsmiths -- University of London) while the US will be represented by Margaret Wyzsomirski (Ohio State University) and the moderator Richard Maloney (New York University). Each panelist will make a 7-10-minute opening statement describing some of the recent challenges they have experienced in their respective programs. Following this, the moderator will ask a series of questions that address specific pedagogical and structural concerns and ask each panelist to respond. Following this, questions will be taken from the audience and the panelists will respond. If time allows, the audience will be divided into small groups to discuss a question posed by the moderator. The groups will state their findings to the panel and the panelists will respond. By comparing best practices in doctoral education from both sides of the Atlantic, my hope is that session participants will be informed and energized and will return home with new ideas to discuss with their colleagues.
