Description

This page is for the purchase of accommodation for the CAMEo conference; see below for information on the event:

The expansion of cultural work –  understood as activities of production in the creative and cultural industries, media and the arts – has been accompanied by a plethora of texts, discourses and representations about such work, as well as a whole range  of policy narratives, descriptions and manifestos designed to specify and define the goods and qualities such work provides. Yet more critical accounts have also emerged to challenge the ways in which cultural and media work is mediated, as well as organised, managed and experienced – subverting common-sense understandings and more upbeat hegemonic narratives.

This interdisciplinary conference therefore focuses on how cultural work and production is mediated - in terms of text, image, discourse, narrative, policy, ideology and fantasy, as well as through technology, materially, and in objective form. We are especially interested to discuss the politics of mediation – and to outline progressive challenges to an ‘expressive’ and ‘creative’ work that continues to be blighted by social exclusivity, inequality and injustice.
