In this paper, Anamik Saha produces a critical account of the ‘diversity’ paradigm that characterises creative industries policy. Drawing from a recent AHRC-funded project ‘Rethinking Diversity in Publishing’, based on interviewers with over 110 professionals in the UK publishing industry, he explores how ‘diversity' is understood and operationalised within this sector, and what this in turn reveals about the nature of racial capitalism within the current conjuncture.
This seminar will be delivered over Zoom. An Eventbrite link will be posted here in the coming weeks where you can register to receive the Zoom details.
