E28, Harrie Massey Lecture Theatre Gordon Street (25) London WC1H 0AY United Kingdom
Announcing the Spring 2023 Soundbites and Director's Seminars, a series of public events hosted by the UCL Institute for Global Prosperity.
This seminar series looks at the radical potential of ‘the popular’. The starting point is that by focussing on the social and cultural relations, meanings and artefacts which hold together communities in times of crisis, we can develop critical ideas and strategies that can advance prosperity and inclusion. These perspectives are vital at the current historical conjuncture in which multiple crises are creating the conditions for authoritarian populism to take advantage of exclusion and disadvantage, despite promises to remedy the gulf between ‘the people’ and ‘elites.’
