Join Wake Forest University and INSTEP for an exciting spring lecture series focusing on UK economic or political topics.

It features colourfully in Harry Potter, Love Actually or Netflix’s Enola Holmes. It is a historical and global centre of media industry and digital development. However, London is also a contested, symbolic space, where different forms of mediated power map onto geographies of Londoners’ everyday experience. In this session we will discuss how media representations and infrastructures interact with forces of identity and may change our understanding of community and reception.

The lecture will be held via Zoom. Login information will be sent to all participants 60 minutes prior to the start of the lecture. Registration for the event will close 10 minutes prior to the beginning of the lecture.
