Cultural Production & Social Justice

gerechtigkeit

Welcome!

Cultural Production and Social Justice was founded as a research group in 2019. It 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, legal, and epistemic justice.

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

Use the links to the left to find out more about researchers associated with the project, events, publications and resources.

We welcome contact from colleagues and graduate students, in and outside the University of Cambridge. To get in touch, email: cpsj@mmll.cam.ac.uk and follow us on X/Twitter @cpsjcam and Bluesky @cpsjcam.bsky.social 

Cultural Production and Social Justice was established with the support of the Cambridge Schröder Fund. Associated projects have been funded by the University of Bayreuth Humboldt Centre, by a LMU-Cambridge Strategic Partnership award, and by UKRI Innovate Horizon Europe Guarantee, for the Horizon Europe project Cartography of the Political Novel in Europe (CAPONEU).
