Leaving Neverland: pedophilia, publics and fandoms


About the Project

This project investigates the receptions and aftermath of the documentary ’Leaving Neverland’ in relation to Michael Jackson’s legacy of music, performance, and his fan base. It asks why, in the midst of the #MeToo movement, so many fans continue to love and defend Jackson. It will consider the roles of race, gender and sexuality in relation to this, and will examine notions of childhood and innocence.

Funding Notes

Many of our international students benefit from funding provided by their governments or employers. Brunel alumni enjoy tuition fee discounts of 15%.
