    Joint Seminar ANTH & PE | Curated Stories: How Storytelling is Hindering Social Change

    In the contemporary era we have seen a proliferation of storytelling activities, from the phenomenon of TED talks and Humans of New York to a plethora of story-coaching agencies and consultants. Professor Sujatha Fernandes' talk, based on her forthcoming book, seeks to understand the rise of this storytelling culture alongside a broader shift to neoliberal free market economies. Suturing together a Foucaultian account of neoliberal reason with Marxian and Gramscian accounts of class formation, Fernandes develops a concept of the political economy of storytelling.
