Inaugural Lecture of Professor Leila Jancovich

Reflections and insights on working in the cultural industries by Leila Jancovich, Professor in Cultural Policy and Participation.

Leila Jancovich, Professor in Cultural Policy and Participation in the School of Performance and Cultural Industries will be giving her inaugural lecture, A LIFETIME OF FAILURE, on Monday 20th February at 4:00 p.m. in Stage one, Stage@Leeds, and will be followed by a drinks reception.

In this Lecture, Professor Jancovich will begin with a reflection on how she fell into the cultural sector almost by accident and how the subsequent failure to make the difference she wanted to, in her professional life, has shaped her research ever since.

She will discuss her key insights from the past ten years of researching cultural participation, before introducing findings from her new open access book, Failures in Cultural Participation  co-written with Professor David Stevenson and published by Palgrave Macmillan.
