Goldsmiths Press response to Covid-19

Goldsmiths Press is commissioning opinion pieces, essays and speculative writing from UK and international scholars that reflect on the current pandemic from the perspective of social, economic and environmental justice.

In addition to analyses of our present situation, we encourage authors to engage with and develop the prevailing sentiment that, post-Covid-19, we cannot and should not return to "life as we know it". What might a different future look like? Contributions will be published open access (free to publish and free to read) on the Goldsmiths Press website and on The Commonplace (a publication of the Knowledge Futures Group).

Glitterworlds: The Future Politics of a Ubiquitous Thing

In Glitterworlds, Rebecca Coleman examines this ubiquity of glitter, following it as it moves across different popular cultural worlds and exploring its effect on understandings and experiences of gender, sexuality, class and race.

"Girly, frivolous and polluting, glitter sticks, spreads and lingers, adding sparkle to where there is none. Dazzling and enchanting, Glitterworlds does full justice to its ambiguous subject by diving deep into the vibrancy and political potentiality of glitter as it transforms worlds by moving between them. After reading this, glitter is not the same."
