Annual CMCI PhD Conference: Culture and Power
11 June 2013, Strand Campus, King’s College London
How is power negotiated in everyday cultural encounters? How are power relations in the cultural industries manifested? This one-day departmental conference for gradate students in the department of CMCI seeks to explore some of the tensions within the wide, overarching theme of Culture and Power.
