  • Maria Jansson

    Hidden Labor – Women’s Conditions in the Swedish Film Industry

    Tuesday, 02 November 2021 13:00 to 14:00

    A collaborative event between the Department of Media and Communication (Örebro University) & the Creative Industries Research and Innovation Network (Oxford Brookes). In this talk Maria Jansson, professor of Gender Studies at Örebro University, argues that women put a lot of labor into dealing with gender injustices in the film industry. This work is invisible in the sense that it is not recognized and sometimes it is even considered shameful to mention. Departing from women’s narrations of their experiences of working in the Swedish film industry the talk exemplifies how gender inequality is manifested in financing and producing film and how women struggle to deal with this.

  • Transnational Blues

    Sitting On Top of the World: A Transnational History of the Blues

    Wednesday, 03 November 2021 18:00 to 19:00

    Blues music is inextricably linked to African American experiences of slavery, segregation, and the structures of white supremacy, but the style has also spread around the world. Existing histories treat the blues’ international circulation as unexpected and often inauthentic. Lawrence Davies presents an alternative view, treating the genre’s international circulation as central to its development and meanings. He examines blues musicians’ experiences of travel, and reflects on how blues has responded to global questions of class, race, solidarity, and exploitation. This lecture accompanies the Special Collections and Archives' Blues Off the Record project to catalogue and make accessible the Paul Oliver Archive of African American Music.
