Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Economic geographers are increasingly interested in the creative industries because not only does this set of industries have increasing economic impact, but also because their complex interrelationships with societal factors and profound ongoing change make them useful for employing and examining theory on the geographical organization of economic activity. This chapter summarizes recent developments of the geography of the creative industries and takes stock of the main theoretical arguments made for explaining them. By way of illustration, the chapter applies these arguments in a brief juxtaposition of the recent developments of the filmed entertainment clusters in Copenhagen, Denmark, and Mumbai, India ('Bollywood').
