Future Station: Like Lockdown Never Happened – Music and Culture during Covid, with Joy White

2 April @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

£5

What music got you through the pandemic? Join us for a conversation with Dr Joy White about culture during COVID at our Future Station talk at 6pm on Tuesday 2 April.

Joy will draw on her latest book ‘Like Lockdown Never Happened’ to consider the ways in which contemporary Black musical forms helped us to pass the time during the early days of lockdown, operating as a site of connection, identity and social commentary.

Dr Joy White is a Senior Lecturer in Applied Social Sciences at the University of Bedfordshire and the author of ‘Terraformed: Young Black Lives in the Inner City’. Her previous work includes ‘Urban Music and Entrepreneurship: Beats, Rhymes and Young People’s Enterprise’, one of the first books to foreground the socio-economic significance of grime music. Recent publications include ‘Growing up under the influence: A sonic genealogy of Grime’, and (with Jonathan Ilan) ‘Ethnographer Soundclash: A UK rap and grime story’. Joy has also written for The Quietus, The Conversation, Trench, Google Arts + Culture, Red Pepper and Prospect.

This talk is in partnership with experimental fiction publisher and shop Dead Ink Books and radical writing publisher Repeater Books.

After the talk, there will be a short Q+A with Joy, and a complimentary vegan meal served. As places are limited, we are asking for a deposit of £5 which will be refunded when you attend. Walk-ups are welcome, subject to availability.
