IPPR at The World Transformed 2019

To mark the launch of the latest edition of Progressive Review, we are pleased to announce that IPPR is hosting a panel at The World Transformed this year.

Cultural Capital(ism): Politics and Culture in the UK Today
Tuesday 24th September, 13:00-14:30, Lecture Theatre, Friends Meeting House

Culture has always been deeply connected to politics. But culture cannot lead politics if it is only the already-powerful who can participate. This session will explore the relationship between culture, politics and economics; the role of culture in political movements and identity formation; and whether culture can be made accessible to everyone.

Speakers include:

  • Rhian E. Jones, Author of Clampdown: Pop-Cultural Wars on Class and Gender
  • David Adler, Policy Coordinator, Democracy in Europe Movement (DiEM25) and Fellow, European University Institute (EUI)
  • Becka Hudson, Creative Producer, Organiser and Writer
  • Dr Monique Charles, Cultural Sociologist
  • Carys Roberts, Chief Economist and Editor of Progressive Review, IPPR

More speakers TBA
