Cultural Production & Social Justice

Project Description

 

Welcome!

Cultural Production and Social Justice explores the roles of the arts and humanities in creating a sustainable, because ethical, societal future. It is an “umbrella” project that critically examines, via a series of specific individual and collaborative research projects, the relationship between artistic production such as film, novels, poetry, performance, and social and epistemic justice.

Opportunistic cultural production can shore up prejudice and further injustice. Acknowledging that, the focus of this project is on how artistic work can open out new perspectives that destabilize prejudices and reveal new possibilities. What is the overlap of politics, ethics, and aesthetics?

Our current focus is primarily but not exclusively on the German-speaking world. We welcome contact from colleagues and graduate students in German Studies and other disciplines. To get in touch, email: cpsj@mmll.cam.ac.uk.

Cultural Production and Social Justice is funded by the Cambridge Schröder Fund. Associated projects are funded by the University of Bayreuth Humboldt Centre, and by a LMU-Cambridge Strategic Partnership award.
