PAA Faculty, Students, and Alumni Shine at AAAE Annual Conference


The Performing Arts Administration (PAA) program participated in the Association of Arts Administration Educators' (AAAE) annual conference, held June 1-4, 2023 at Baruch College in New York City. PAA faculty, students, and alumni were well-represented; several were specifically recognized for the quality of their contributions. 

PAA Visiting Assistant Professor Dr. Ruby Yu presented a summary of her doctoral dissertation, “Research on the Crisis Management of Art World Based on the Perspective of Social Network,” which was selected as one of three finalists for the 2022 ENCATC Research Award on Cultural Policy and Cultural Management.  This international award is given annually to the best doctoral dissertation in the Arts Management and Cultural Policy field. 

PAA Program Director and Vice-President of ENCATC (the European Network on Cultural Management and Policy), Dr. Richard Maloney, presided over a collaborative session called “Crossing Perspectives: AAAE-ENCATC.”  This session examined issues that impact the world’s two largest networks of Arts Management and Cultural Policy scholars and educators.  Dr. Maloney facilitated a panel discussion that addressed the current state of doctoral education and its future impact on arts administration educators. Panelists included Dr. Yu and PAA adjunct faculty members Dr. Evgeniya Kondrashina and Dr. Anthony Rhine. Dr. Maloney also presented a summary of his latest study, “Interest in Doctoral Education: A Study of NYU Arts Administration Alumni,” with PAA Research Assistant Jacqueline Messinetti (‘23), who helped design and administer the survey.

Dr. Hsin-Ching Wu, a former PAA program postdoctoral scholar and Research Affiliate and current Assistant Professor of Arts Management at the College of Charleston, received the award for Best Paper by an Emerging Arts Administration Educator for her co-authored paper "Artists as Co-Creators: Advancing Artists-in-Residence Models in the Local Government Context.”

Albert Martínez (‘23) received the Best Student Paper Award for “Integrating Design Thinking into Arts Organizations: An Approach to Developing DEI-Centered Community Engagement Programs.” Alumnus Churui (Ellen) Li (‘19) delivered a presentation about the availability of information and resources for classical pianists dealing with performance-related injuries. 

This participation demonstrates the prominent role NYU Steinhardt’s Program in Performing Arts Administration plays in advancing discourse and research in the arts administration and cultural policy field.
