Kirsty Sedgman

Kirsty Sedgman is a cultural studies expert who specialises in audience experience and human behaviour. Currently a lecturer at the University of Bristol, she has spoken about her research around the world, and has seen her work featured in outlets including BBC Front Row, the Times Literary Supplement, Guardian, and New York Times. In her new book On Being Unreasonable, she argues that sometimes we need to act unreasonably to bring about positive change. Looking back through history and around the world, Kirsty Sedgman set out to discover how unfairness and discrimination got baked into our social norms, dividing us along lines of gender, class, disability, sexuality, race.
