Biography

Peter Booth is postdoctoral fellow at the Centre for Creative Industries at BI Norwegian Business School (since 2017). He received his PhD in Cultural Economics from Erasmus University Rotterdam, following studies in fine art, economics and finance at University of Melbourne, London School of Economics, and the Oslo National Academy of the Arts. In his research, Peter is interested in cultural economics, theories of value, sociology of art and finance, and issues connecting arts, digitization and diversity. His post-doctoral fellowship is linked to the ‘Digitization and Diversity’ project, an element of the KULMEDIA research program that investigates connections between the role of cultural life and the media in society and the economic and technological framework underlying this.
