The Precariat in Art and Culture

Hogg, E. J. (Organizer)

Activity: Attending an eventConference organisation or participation

Description

This international workshop aims to explore the multiple uses of cultural and artistic forms in relation to conceptualizations and experiences of precarity. Do cultural and artistic texts depict, resist, or illuminate precarity – or something else? Key topics to be discussed include the distinctiveness of the approaches to the precariat taken by poetry, narrative fiction and theatre/performance, building an account of the precariat which is attentive to geopolitical variations, and precarity’s affective dimensions, especially its potential to forge new forms of solidarity which transcend older class distinctions.
