Autobiography and Cultural Politics

Jonathan Gross, Sophie Hope

Research output: Other contribution


Sophie Hope and Jonathan Gross discuss the relationship between autobiography and cultural action, and the needs to explore memory and history as a means of making sense of one’s own cultural politics. During the conversation they each discuss how they came to view cultural democracy as a meaningful idea and a useful tool, and what inspired them to do so. The conversation then broadens to include the work of Aristotle, Sheila Rowbottom, Lynne Segal and Hilary Wainwright. They then begin to ask whether we should see cultural democracy primarily as a kind of practice or as a demand for systemic change.
