Event details

In this seminar, Dr Karen Patel's will draws upon her research with women makers of colour from London and Birmingham. She'll also explore how identity is negotiated both online and in makers' work, in an increasingly competitive and ostensibly homogenous craft economy.

Dr Patel is a researcher at the Birmingham School of Media, where she is currently looking at how social media platforms can support diversity in craft practice for the Crafts Council UK.

This is a joint seminar with Solent University's Culture, Media and Place research group.
