CultureCase publishes new academic summaries for the cultural sector
Posted on 01/02/2018
CultureCase, the free academic resource for the cultural sector, is publishing its latest round of research summaries. These summaries, being uploaded to the site bi-weekly through to March 2018, communicate the latest cultural research from university academics around the world. The first article, published 1 February, explores the emotional power of poetry, and the impact it can have on our brains.
CultureCase is a website established and run by King's College London. It provides easily accessible summaries of key findings and empirical evidence to support and inform the work of the cultural sector. The summaries have been derived from research and demonstrate the impact that arts and culture have on society, as well as highlighting a range of insights to inform future planning.
The articles come from peer-reviewed academic journals, and are in response to challenges set by the cultural sector. The majority are authored by a network of Knowledge Exchange Associates (KEAs), a group of early career researchers working across the university. KEAs help to embed King’s cultural strategy within academic departments. Writing these summaries develops the KEAs skills in communicating often complex research findings outside of the academic sphere.
Assistant Principal (London), Deborah Bull said: 'The latest CultureCase summaries are testament to the value and range of insights academic research can offer to the cultural sector, from the latest research into the effect of arts participation on mental health, to understanding conductor-musician relationships. Later this year, CultureCase will enter its second phase of development, with the addition of cultural sector data sets and statistics alongside the ever-growing bank of research summaries. This new resource has been developed by King’s Department of Informatics and King’s Digital Lab and promises to enhance CultureCase as the one stop shop for empirical evidence that supports both effective decision making and case making across the cultural sector.'
