The Department of Political Economy, together with the Department of Anthropology, hosted an outstanding seminar by Professor Sujatha Fernandes to a packed audience at the University of Sydney on 13 October 2016.
Professor Fernandes spoke about her notion of the ‘political economy of storytelling’, developed in her forthcoming book, Curated Stories: How Storytelling is Hindering Social Change, which will be published by Oxford University Press in 2017.
