A quick post to draw your attend to our experiment in crowd sourcing the planning for a symposium. We’re planning another event (probably next academic year) and we’d like to get your input into who we should invite. If you think of a speaker who would address the theme of Discourses of Dissent in an interesting way then please do let us know.
Thanks everyone for a great day. We recorded video and audio of both sessions which will be posted up on the website as we get them online. We’re also planning a series of podcasts exploring ideas and accounts which came up in greater detail.
There will be another event, with a similar format, next academic year. The same theme applies: how can academic research help inform and sustain political resistance? If you’d like to suggest a speaker for us to approach then you can do so here.
