Late Night Television And Its Impact On The Music Industry Via Album Sales And Social Media, Matthew Robin 2012 Syracuse University

Late Night Television And Its Impact On The Music Industry Via Album Sales And Social Media, Matthew Robin

Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects

Experiential learning has been a large part of my college experience. My work experiences have allowed me to understand the music industry in a very unique way. One experience was my semester in Los Angeles, where I worked at Jimmy Kimmel Live! It was there that I was able to see the influence that these shows could have on musical guests and vice versa. The late-night landscape is as booming as it ever has been, with many different outlets for talent. I wanted to demonstrate that the process of getting an artist on a late-night show is a very cyclical ...

The New Orleans Museum Of Art: A Case Study Demonstrating The Weakened Vision Of New Orleans' Most Established Cultural Institution, Allison L. Abney

Beads, Sculptures, And Baskets: South African Traditional Craft As A Means Of Economic Empowerment, Sasha Kaori Hippard

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

The significance of the South African traditional craft industry is often associated with the preservation of historical culture. However, besides being a crucial element in the protection and promotion of cultural heritage, craftwork also can be a significant source of income generation for disadvantaged communities across South Africa. The African Art Centre, a non-profit organization located in Durban, reaches out to various communities of disadvantage in and around the KwaZulu Natal province, holding training and design workshops, providing access to craft skills and materials, and providing a market for the sale of craft as a source of sustainable economic empowerment ...

The Bias Against Creativity: Why People Desire But Reject Creative Ideas, Jennifer S. Mueller, Shimul Melwani, Jack A. Goncalo 2012 University of Pennsylvania

The Bias Against Creativity: Why People Desire But Reject Creative Ideas, Jennifer S. Mueller, Shimul Melwani, Jack A. Goncalo

Management Papers

People often reject creative ideas, even when espousing creativity as a desired goal. To explain this paradox, we propose that people can hold a bias against creativity that is not necessarily overt and that is activated when people experience a motivation to reduce uncertainty. In two experiments, we manipulated uncertainty using different methods, including an uncertainty-reduction prime. The results of both experiments demonstrated the existence of a negative bias against creativity (relative to practicality) when participants experienced uncertainty. Furthermore, this bias against creativity interfered with participants’ ability to recognize a creative idea. These results reveal a concealed barrier that creative ...

Part II uses interviews and financial data to profile a dozen theatres within the Denver-Metro area (including three that have ...

Museums, Leadership, And Transfer: An Inquiry Into Organizational Supports For Learning Leadership, Julie I. Johnson

Dissertations & Theses

Given the rapid changes that 21st century museums must manage, flexible thinking about leadership forms and purposes is needed.

The purpose of this study was to: describe museum professionals' perceptions of leadership practices; investigate museums as sites of organizational and leadership learning; and consider the experiences of museum professionals who have participated in leader development programs.

Musicology And Cruisicology : Formal Musical Performance On Cruise Ships 2003-2011, David W. Cashman

Theses

The burgeoning cruise industry staged live musical performances daily for the nearly 15 million tourists who undertook a cruise in 2010. These performances play important roles in the integrated cruise leisure product, such as controlling guest movement, encouraging consumption and portraying the cruise line as it wishes to be portrayed. Performances also provide reassurances of familiarity and safety regardless of the location of the cruise ship. Such performances contribute to the experience of a cruise thereby contributing to the profitability of the industry. The documentation and manner and method of musical implementation aboard cruise ships form the focus of this ...


Rationalising Public Service: Scheduling As A Tool Of Management In Rté Television, Ann-Marie Murray 2011 Dublin Institute of Technology

Rationalising Public Service: Scheduling As A Tool Of Management In Rté Television, Ann-Marie Murray

Doctoral

Developments in the media industry, notably the increasing commercialisation of broadcasting and deregulation, have combined to create a television system that is now driven primarily by ratings. Public broadcast organisations must adopt novel strategies to survive and compete in this new environment, where they need to combine public service with popularity. In this context, scheduling has emerged as the central management tool, organising production and controlling budgets, and is now the driving force in television. Located within Weber’s theoretical framework of rationalisation, this study analyses the rise of scheduling as part of a wider organisational response to political and ...

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

A recent study showed that people evaluate products more positively when they are physically associated with art images than similar non-art images. Neuroimaging studies of visual art have investigated artistic style and esthetic preference but not brain responses attributable specifically to the artistic status of images. Here we tested the hypothesis that the artistic status of images engages reward circuitry, using event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) during viewing of art and non-art images matched for content. Subjects made animacy judgments in response to each image. Relative to non-art images, art images activated, on both subject- and item-wise analyses, reward-related ...

An Investigation Into How Greater Financial Stability Can Be Achieved For Portugal’S National Museums Under Management Of The Portuguese Institute Of Museums And Conservation (Imc), Luis Ramos Pinto

MA Theses

The European sovereign debt crisis has led to considerable cuts in public funding for the arts. Portugal, one of the countries most affected by the crisis has recently seen consistent public cuts for its cultural organizations. With the prospect of continued budget cuts, this paper seeks to examine how Portugal's largest public institute for the management of museums and built heritage the IMC (Instituto de Museus e Conservação) can seek to generate more private revenue and lower its costs in order to garner greater financial stability for itself.
