Event description

Description

Please join us for an interdisciplinary symposium to explore the interplay between gender and subjectivity in neoliberal times.

Questions of subjectivity have been central to feminist debates on neoliberalism. The interplay between femininity and subjectivity in neoliberal times has been explored in a range of contexts, such as creative labour, new femininities, beauty politics, contemporary forms of feminist activism, and the politics of ageing. What are the contours of neoliberal, gendered subjectivities and how are these lived out? Are processes of exclusion at the heart of the formations of subjectivities in neoliberalism? And how do these dynamics play out in different contexts, such as intimate life, the world of work, or contemporary media culture?

Join us to discuss these and other issues at a roundtable symposium with:

Angela McRobbie

Rosalind Gill

Bridget Conor

Christina Scharff

Shir Shimoni

The event is chaired by Catherine Rottenberg and will also celebrate the publication of Christina Scharff’s new book Gender, Subjectivity, and Cultural Work: The Classical Music Profession, Routledge: https://www.routledge.com/Gender-Subjectivity-and-Cultural-Work-The-Classical-Music-Profession/Scharff/p/book/9781138942561
