Tuesday Keynote: Arts & Humanities Research, Activism and Social Justice Roundtable
Tuesday 22nd of June, 1.30pm - 2.15pm
This roundtable will hear from researchers in the arts and humanities from across Scotland whose work informs or functions as activism. Interacting with and underpinning socially just change-making policy, their research is frequently conducted in partnership with external organisations. From gender inequalities in TV and film, refugee histories and lives, and inclusive youth literature and book trade activism, the panellists will discuss their research alongside the challenges, opportunities and urgency of carrying out such work.
