  • Cinema Room WC1N 1AS (map)

About the Lecture:

Dr. Stuart will host an open discussion prompted by a few significant themes such as BritExit, migration, sexual/racial violence anti-Semitism and their implications on society today. The aim is to explore how these impact upon student life and how we might mitigate this, especially in a new world of social media and powerful social influencers.
