Assistant Professor
Columbus, Ohio
Dr. Shoshanah Goldberg-Miller (PhD, The New School; MBA, SUNY Binghamton; BFA, University of Michigan) 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. Dr. Goldberg-Miller is Assistant Professor in the Department of Arts Administration, Education and Policy, Affiliate Assistant Professor of City and Regional Planning in the Knowlton School of Architecture at The Ohio State University. Originally from Toronto, Goldberg-Miller serves as Academic Advisor to the City of Toronto’s Department of Economic Development and Culture. Her book, Planning for a City of Culture: Creative Urbanism in 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 the role of arts and culture in both the transformation of Toronto and the revitalization of New York during the decade of the 2000s.

Goldberg-Miller has published in City, Culture and Society, Journal of Arts Management, Law and Society, Cities: The International Journal of Policy and Planning, Artivate: A Journal of Entrepreneurship and the Arts, and Journal of Enterprising Culture, and has co-authored chapters in Entrepreneurship in Culture and Creative Industries and Creating Cultural Capital.
