Marisol at ESA in Prague

Last month Marisol Sandoval participated in the 12th annual conference of the European Sociological Association (ESA) in Prague.

Marisol presented her recent work on cultural co-operatives and their potentials to challenge problems of inequality, precariousness an individualisation in cultural sector work. Her presentation was part of a session on Re-inventing Worker Politics organised by the Sociology of Communications and the Media research network (RN18).

RN18 also organised a very successful semi-plenary session where Angela McRobbie and Jim McGuigan discussed the The Legacies of Stuart Hall and Richard Hoggart for the Future of Marxist Studies of Media and Culture.
