about this item

This groundbreaking Handbook brings together leading international experts in creativity and culture research to provide an overview of current debates. It also showcases the the wealth of topics, approaches and definitions involved with the interdisciplinary topic of creativity research. The theoretical and methodological innovations emerging from the joint study of creativity and culture highlight the role of creativity within today's innovation-based, multicultural societies. 
Drawing on case studies from Scandinavia, Europe, Asia and Africa, this Handbook provides a truly global outlook on current creativity research within an emergent, interdisciplinary field. This variety is highlighted by the Handbook's structure as it is divided into five sections; Creativity and Culture in the Psychology of Creativity; Creativity in Socio-Cultural Psychology; Creativity in Cultural Context; Creativity and Culture in Applied Domains; Cross-disciplinary Perspectives on Creativity and Culture. These sections provide a clear overview of the debates and questions as the contributors share their interest in creativity, not only as an individual but also a social and cultural phenomenon and in culture as both foundation and outcome of creative action. 
The Handbook will be an  essential resource for researchers, particularly those based in social science and humanities disciplines.
