Popular Representations of Development: Insights from Novels, Films, Television and Social Media

Book Colloquium
 
Popular Representations of Development takes a novel approach to the broad discipline of development studies that goes beyond narrow policy or social science frameworks. Instead, the authors reassess the breadth and popularity of development studies through analysis of literature, films, and other non-conventional forms of representation. 
 
Encompassing the FLJS programmes in development and law, film, and literature, this book colloquium invites attendees to rethink their understanding of development issues in favour of a holistic approach.
 

Participants include

 
Professor David Lewis, editor of Popular Representations of Development and Professor of Social Policy and Development, LSE
 
Dr Catherine Jenkins, Lecturer in Law and Chair of the Centre for Law and Conflict, SOAS
 
Dr Tim Markham, Head of Department, Media and Cultural Studies, Birkbeck
 
Dr Amir Paz-Fuchs, Lecturer in Employment Law, University of Sussex
 
Martin Wynne, Digital Methods Specialist, Oxford e-Research Centre
