"How will people continue to develop an understanding of the social world as it is changing?"
Professor Angela McRobbie combines the study of different dimensions of youth culture with a commentary on development in cultural theory and politics. Her essays reflect on young women and the contemporary world of neo-liberal culture and neo-liberal politics.
As Professor of Communications at Goldsmiths, Angela aims to analyse and explain the social structures of the world that we live in but also provide students with the tools to become active subjects.
With the rise of the creative economy, Angela’s forthcoming book - Be Creative: Making a Living in the New Culture Industries and her continuing work with the Centre for Copyright and New Business Models in the Creative Economy (CREATe) aim to demonstrate how there are vast numbers of things that can be done in contemporary society to impact social change and facilitate civic engagement.
