All events are free but separate booking is necessary
Event 1 – March 9th
‘Sites of Resistance: Speaking Truth to Power’
This session will consider the role of the documentary film maker in supporting challenges against injustice. The session will include the screening and discussion of sections of recent documentaries which reveal the criminalisation of certain communities, and instances of injustice by the State. This discussion is connected to the ongoing work of academics in the MMU Sociology department focussed on Joint Enterprise laws and the Hillsborough tragedy.
Event 2 – March 16th
‘Sites of Resistance: Collective Thought and Action’
This panel session will consider the potential value of linking struggles for justice across a range of different issues or events, and specifically the role of the academic who may work alongside campaigners and activists. Speakers with experience of working across a number of justice campaigns will consider the strategies used to collectively ask questions of the State in order to bring about wider notions of justice.
Event 3 – March 23rd
‘Sites of Resistance: Giving Voice to the Next Generation’
The final session will provide an activist space within which young people from local communities impacted by crime and criminalisation can make their contribution to the debate.
We hope you can make it!
