The research cluster is part of Roskilde University’s new priority research initiative: Dynamics of Globalization, Inequality and New Processes of International Interaction (‘Global Dynamics’). The research cluster has been initiated on the basis of our work and collaboration in the Research Network on Celebrities and North-South Relations. The inaugural seminar focused on new research areas within the field of celebrity activism in a global context. The event was held on June 12-13th 2013 at Roskilde University, Denmark.
