Director - Interdisciplinary Centre for Social Inclusion and Cultural
Eleonora (or Ele) Belfiore joined the University of Aberdeen in January 2022 from Loughborough University, where she was Co-Director of the Centre for Research in Communication and Culture. At Aberdeen, she is the inaugural Director of the new Interdisciplinary Centre for Social Inclusion and Cultural Diversity.
She has published extensively on cultural politics and policy, cultural value, and particularly the place that notions of the ‘social impacts’ of the arts have had in British cultural policy discourses. For Palgrave, she edits the book series New Directions in Cultural Policy Research, which has published 16 volumes to date, and she is Co-Editor in Chief journal Cultural Trends. Ele is currently researching the labour conditions of socially engaged arts practice from an ethics of care perspective, and the role of the creative industries for development in Ghana.
Ele is committed to the promotion of equality, diversity and inclusion in Higher Education, and she is one of the founding members of the Women In Academia Support Network, a trans-inclusive and intersectional charity that brings together over 12,500 women and non-binary members from across the world to support one another and pushes for gender parity and more equitable working conditions in Higher Education.
