We’d like to invite you to an event on 30/1 at Coventry University, Richard Crossman Building, Room 124 starting at 4pm and finishing around 6.30pm:
‘Commemorating the life and ideas of Professor Stuart Hall’
We think it’ll be of interest to students, academics and practitioners.
The event will begin with a talk by Dr Gurnam Singh (Associate Professor of Social Work at CU). Thereafter a film ‘The Stuart Hall Project’ will be shown and followed by an audience discussion.
Professor Stuart Hall is widely regarded as the originator of the discipline of cultural studies. His ground-breaking work enabled students, academics and activists to make connections between culture, power and politics. His approach, drawing on a wide range of disciplines, from literary theory, linguistics, to sociology, criminology, anthropology, history and politics was instrumental in enabling us to develop new insights and research questions related to race, class, gender, sexuality, popular media and politics. This presentation will embark on a personal reflection of how Hall’s work has shaped my own intellectual journey, which has sought to connect the question of ‘race’, ‘racism’, social work and education.
There’s no need to book, just turn up!
We look forward to seeing you on the 30th!
