Is it possible to harness the market to achieve political and ethical goals? This symposium examines the interface between enterprise, ethics and activism in the cultural industries, with a particular focus on the publishing sector and on feminist interventions. Papers will explore the challenges and opportunities offered by the harnessing of enterprise and for-profit forms of cultural practice with goals such as gender equity, environmental sustainability, diversity and social justice. The symposium spans historical and contemporary examples, and asks how past practice might inform the present.
Confirmed speakers include: Kaitlynn Mendes, Bibia Pavard, Gillian Murphy, Catherine Riley, Bibia Pavard, Melanie Waters, Victoria Bazin, Rosy Mack, Gail Chester and Joshua Clark-Davis
