PROGRAMA DE LA SESSIÓ:

Austerity imaginaries in contemporary popular culture - Final Seminar of the research project 'Heroes of the crisis: Narratives and social discourses in contemporary popular culture'
 
The economic crisis that followed the ‘crash’ of 2008 and that affected several Western countries led to a deepening of neoliberal discourses, which have prescribed individual solutions to the recession based on entrepreneurship and self-help. In this context, austerity and resilience have emerged as two key concepts prescribed to address and cope with the new context of precarity and inequality that followed the crisis. In this seminar, we will explore how these neoliberal imaginaries have developed and spread in three different national contexts: The UK, Ireland, and Spain.
 
This seminar is organized in the context of the research project 'Heroes of the crisis: narratives and social discourses in contemporary popular culture', funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (2015-2019). The main aim of this research project is to study how the economic crisis was portrayed in the media and the construction of austerity imaginaries in post-recession Spain.
