A professor at the Annenberg School of Communications and Journalism, Sarah Banet-Weiser recently authored ‘Authentic (TM): The Politics of Ambivalence in a Brand Culture’, about the proliferance of branding not only as a model in business, but as a tool for the creation and maintenance of social and cultural relationships.
Sarah will be discussing what she terms ‘brand cultures’, noting everything from the brand culture of street art, to feminized ‘self-branding’ in social media, to the culture of green branding and ‘shopping for change’.
