Dr. Shoshanah Goldberg-Miller (PhD, The New School) specializes in creative economic development, cultural policy, arts entrepreneurship, and nonprofit management. She examines the ways that cities use arts and culture in planning, fostering livable communities and creating economic development strategies to build their brand, attract residents and tourists, and distinguish themselves from other urban centers worldwide. Her book, Planning for a City of Culture: Toronto and New York (Routledge, Taylor & Francis, March 2017) brings a new, fresh perspective to the study of creative cities by using policy theory as an underlying construct to understand both the transformation of Toronto and the revitalization of New York during the decade of the 2000s.

Goldberg-Miller has published in Artivate: A Journal of Entrepreneurship and the Arts, and Journal of Enterprising Culture, and co-authored a chapter in Creating Cultural Capital. Dr. Goldberg-Miller is Assistant Professor of Arts Administration, Education & Policy at The Ohio State University, holds a courtesy appointment in the Knowlton School of Architecture’s City and Regional Planning Section, and serves as Academic Advisor to the City of Toronto’s Department of Economic Development and Culture.
