Dr. Shoshanah B.D. 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 of Arts Administration, Education and Policy, and Affiliate Assistant Professor of City and Regional Planning in the Knowlton School of Architecture at The Ohio State University, and 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 the transformation of Toronto and the revitalization of New York during the decade of the 2000s.

Goldberg-Miller has published in 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. Prior to joining the OSU faculty in Autumn 2014, Dr. Goldberg-Miller taught at The New School, Hunter College, and Columbia University. An experienced fundraiser, Goldberg-Miller was on the executive team at The Paley Center for Media, American Cancer Society, Greenwich House Pottery, March of Dimes, American Museum of Natural History, and Museum of Holography. As a management consultant, seminar leader and speaker, Dr. Goldberg-Miller serves clients including The Greater Columbus Arts Council, Columbus’ Lincoln Theatre, Parsons School of Design, Aspen Institute, National Geographic, and Sesame Workshop, as well as numerous individuals and community-based organizations.
