Canada's creative industries encompass book, periodical, and newspaper publishing; radio and television broadcasting; the music industry; video game production; filmmaking and video production; telecommunications; and the new media. These industries represent a major sector in the Canadian economy and exert a profound influence on many aspects of Canadian life.

In Cultural, thirteen contributors take a thought-provoking look at the industries that form this important sector and the central issues that are currently under debate. They also discuss how these industries have adapted to the rise of new digital technologies that have radically altered how they engage with their audiences and how they produce and distribute content.

Offering a timely analysis and a wealth of current data, Cultural offers a unique portrait of this key sector of the economy.

IRA WAGMAN is an Associate Professor of Communication Studies at Carleton University. He has published research in the areas of cultural policy and media history.
PETER URQUHART is an Assistant Professor in the Communication Studies Department at Wilfrid Laurier University. His research focuses on media history with a special interest in film and television studies.
