My PhD research asked what it means to work for a major record label in the UK, after the impact of digital technologies. I was particularly interested in the conditions and motivations of “non-creative” (that is, administrative or back-room) workers as they move through labour markets embedded in this “creative” context. I’m currently following this up with projects that explore the broader context of the place of cultural and creative industries in the knowledge economy.
