after the economy 2009-2010
a new public seminar series to challenge current thinking
Faced with a political imaginary committed to a discourse of economic realism and with the limited expectations concerning cultural research and policy that follow from this discourse, the Graduate School of Creative Arts & Media invites you to join a series of seminars that seek to challenge current orthodoxies concerning culture and economy and to re-imagine correlations between cultural production, the creation of wealth, and the value of labour.
Under the title of After the Economy, three seminars will offer informative presentations on problems and arguments relating to key pairings of concepts, followed by shorter presentations and discussion, in order to establish a series of platforms for dialogue and possible collaboration.
Seminar I: Immaterial
Labour and the Creative Economy
Monday 19th October 2009, 14:00 to 17:00
Seminar II: Organising Labour and Negotiating Precarity
Monday 7th December 2009, 14:00 to 17:00
to book a place contact Tim Stott at timothystott(at)hotmail.com
Seminar III: Culture and Citizenship
Wednesday 17th February 2010, 14:00 to 17:00
This last event in the series is part of the Arts Research: Publics and Purposes
Following these three seminars will be a concluding seminar in Spring of 2010 that will clarify outstanding debates and points of contention, and seek to identify how knowledge gained might be oriented towards the broader concerns of the parties involved.
This series is part of the ongoing programme of public events organised by the Graduate School. For the current programme see 'speaking matters 09/10' and for the previous programme see speaking matters 08/09
