Edward Akintola Hubbard (Moderator) 26 October 2017


Edward Akintola (Akin) Hubbard’s scholarly interests are in pop culture, creative economies and ecologies, cultural entrepreneurship, creolization and creole expressive forms, gothic and carnivalesque aesthetics, gender and sexuality, cultural globalization, and the intersection of ethnographic and artistic practice.

He holds a BA in Mass Communication from the University of the West Indies, an MA in Social Sciences from the University of Chicago, and a PhD in Anthropology from Harvard University. Before coming to Universiteit Utrecht in 2015, he designed and taught courses at Harvard and New York Universities on media and globalization, avant-garde aesthetics, cinema, queer studies and ethnographic methods. His courses merge the study of cultural texts, mediascapes and ethnographic data, bringing perspectives on fine arts, music, film, media and literature into dialogue with cultural theory and globalization studies.
