    Description: This article argues that criticism is fundamental for understanding how culture and politics shape the ambiguous self-interpretation of society. An initial exploration of Habermas's theory of the public sphere reveals that it is inadequately cultural. An alternative is thus offered by discussing the work of Jacobs, and especially his concept of an "aesthetic public sphere". His insight that nothing is too trivial when it comes to broadening the limits of the public sphere prompts scholars to take into consideration the positive as well as negative aspects of criticism. As a cultural mediation, criticism is shaped by a struggle for recognition that gives rise to the interpretation of its own crisis. The purpose of the article, however, is to propose a more balance account of such predicament. By discussing online criticism, the rise of the "prosumer" and user-generated content, it is argued that there is now a new battle for authority and legitimacy undergoing. This creates the...

    Description: This article explores the promises of critical hermeneutics as an innovative method and philosophy within the human sciences. It is argued that its success depends on its ability to articulate a theory of meaning with one of action and experience as well as its capacity to renew our understanding of the problem of ideology. First, critical hermeneutics must explain how cultural messages ‘show and hide’; that is, how the ambiguity of meaning always allows for a group to represent itself while opening the door for distortion and domination. Second, critical hermeneutics ought to show how action can be best understood as opposing performances driven by ideological-moral views. Through an analysis of social movements, for instance, it is shown that any attempt to do justice could also and easily create exclusion. Third, critical hermeneutics has to clarify how tension and dualism within meaning and action are not to be dissociated from the self-interpretation of concrete individuals....

    In: The Journal of Arts Management, Law, and Society: Comparative Digital Cultural Policy Studies, 20 October 2017, Vol.47(5), pp.295-299
    Description: The nascent field of comparative digital cultural policy studies is a call for both new ideas and audacious actions. It is an effort toward developing a research agenda that responds to the challenges currently faced by States and other regulatory bodies. Indeed, digitalization represents a paradigm shift: not a cultural revolution per se, but a tectonic realignment nonetheless. Policymaking needs expertise in such a way that it needs to be fact-checked and/or based on reliable knowledge. And the extent to which actual stakeholders use such knowledge might sometimes require a leap of faith. Yet, this does not preclude cultural policy scholars from engaging in a dialogue over their roles and prerogatives, developing meaningful interventions into the current debate while retaining their independence. The way forward might require a new and reflexive methodological turn. One such robust method employs comparison. To compare is to conceptualize, which reveals the possibilities and limits, the...

    Description: This article explores the growing importance of algorithms in digital culture and what they could mean for the visibility and interpretation of culture as a whole. Taking Google as a prime example of a company that participates in widespread information overload whilst simultaneously providing some algorithmic answers to it, we show how it exhibits four different regimes of justification: the techno-scientific, economic, political and moral–aesthetic. These efforts to gain legitimacy operate as a network that is both highly performative and adaptive. For instance, Google builds on and translates such justifications in order for its Project Glass to be widely, if not universally, accepted. But there is another influential mode of performativity at work: the mounting criticism of the device. In the 18 months following the public announcement of Glass, we have observed the media phenomenon and passionate debate it has sparked. What Glass represents is being contested on multiple...

    Description: The current digital era poses numerous challenges for cultural policy, which must adapt not only to new technologies, but also to new forms of consumption that have arisen alongside them. These challenges are all the more significant due to the increasing complexity that characterizes the field of cultural policy, which is intertwined in many ways with the media. In Canada, the situation is complicated by the fact that federal and provincial governments promote distinct goals for the development of a digital cultural policy. Because of its cultural particularity, the province of Québec presents an interesting case study, especially with respect to its proposed Plan Cultural Numérique du Québec (PCNQ) as it differs from the federal plan. Through a comparison of the federal and provincial orientations towards the future of digital culture, this article exposes and analyzes the inherent tensions that emerge as these different approaches are elaborated.
