Markets, exploitation and employment in the music industry

A workshop at the University of Leeds
The TEMS team is organising a workshop on music labour markets, to be held at the University of Leeds on 10th December, 10:30-3:00pm. The workshop will be titled “Markets, exploitation and employment in the music industry”, and will feature four speakers, presenting an in-depth look at the way labour and product markets work in music. Particular themes of interest are the role of intermediaries such as agents, managers, welfare providers and unions in regulating the musicians’ labour market and establishing prices and practices. There will also be discussion of the ways in which new developments in the recorded music industry has led to recording companies loading more financial risk onto performers.
Confirmed speakers are Wenceslas Lizé (University of Poitiers), Leslie Meier (University of Leeds), Martin Cloonan (University of Glasgow) and Charles Umney (University of Leeds).
Attendance is free- if you are interested in coming contact c.r.umney@leeds.ac.uk
