Professor Angela McRobbie, Professor of Communications at Goldsmiths, will present a public lecture entitled 'Critical Perspectives on Creative Labour' as part of the ESRC Feminism and Futurity seminar series; Resistance/Resilience/Reworking: Reflections on Feminism and Futurity.

"This lecture will discuss her work on the 'new culture industry' that will appear in 2011 as a book titled Be Creative: Precarious Labour in Art and Cultural Worlds, London, Berlin, Glasgow. This book undertakes a theorisation of precarious labour drawing on the work of Michel Foucault. It examines the world of freelance, casualised creative work in three cities, it pays particular attention to micro-enterprises of creative labour including fashion design, art- working, multi-media, curating, arts administration, and so on."

All are welcome.
