ENCATC Research Award on Cultural Policy and Cultural Management 2014
The 2014 Award winner: Elodie Bordat-Chauvin
Elodie Bordat-Chauvin holds a PhD in political science from Sciences Po. Aix-en-Provence (France).
Through a comparative historical analysis, her thesis shows the emergence, institutionalisation and evolution of the cultural sector’s public policy in Mexico and Argentina, from 1983 to 2009. The central hypothesis is that dynamics of change in cultural policy may be understood by drawing on four analytical dimensions: actors, cognitive representations, institutional frameworks and public policy instruments.
Elodie Bordat has also worked on the French cultural diplomacy in Mexico and the role of associations in cultural policies, during her Masters in ethnology. In 2013, she published an article about the institutionalisation of Mexican cultural policy in the International Journal of Cultural Policy.
In 2014, she published an article in the French journal Pôle Sud about how intellectuals’ mobilisations have contributed to the institutionalisation of cultural policies in Mexico and Argentina in a special issue in which she is editor. She has presented her work at several international conferences in America and Europe.
