Beyond the crisis: global justice, equality, social movements

The Maynooth MAs in Community Education, Equality & Social Activism and in Anthropology & Development are hosting this day workshop in Seomra Spraoi on May 7th (admittance free). The general idea is that the last couple of years of crisis have left us reacting to one thing after another and finding it hard to keep our heads above water while not just "the situation out there" but the situation of our own movements has changed dramatically: so the workshop is deliberately about less obviously immediate and urgent ways of looking at things, more strategic and "bigger questions".

The presenters and facilitators are a mix of activist academics and academic activists, all well-known in their fields but we don't often get to hear most of them talking in Dublin around these topics: John Holloway, Eurig Scandrett, Kathy Powell, Laurence Davis, Rosie Meade, David Nugent and Aileen O'Carroll. A splendid time is guaranteed for all...
