From Idea to Institution: a Process of Diffusion or Translation?
2011 (English)In: Local Development and Creative Industries: empirical, methodological and theoretical reflections / [ed] Conny Pettersson, Dorit Christensen, Visby: Gotland University , 2011, 391-441 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
This chapter presents a synthesis of three models for understanding how ideas are disseminated and institutionalized. The first one, linear diffusion, implies that ideas are realized in a uniform manner. In the second, non-linear diffusion, new proposals are received in the same way but realised differently. And according to the third model, evolutionary translation, reception and realisation occur via a process of dual translation. The resulting synthesis is firmly based on translation thinking, but features salient elements of the two other models.
