Criminologist Gemma Flynn (University of Edinburgh) invites you to delve unashamedly into the world of pop culture behemoths The Kardashians. Should academia make more of an effort to Keep Up With The Kardashians (#KUWTK)? Gemma reckons so, and she has gender and justice research, plus plenty of primary sources, to prove it. This event explores neoliberalism at its extremes, gender fluidity and the decline of hegemonic masculinity. You’ll also learn about hierarchies of victimisation – underlined by the Kim Kardashian jewel heist. No prior viewing required!
