Influencing social change – insights from the Stuart Hall Project

Many have commented on the significant contribution that Stuart Hall has made to Cultural and Sociological theory, e.g. Paul Gilroy, Tony Jefferson, Chris Rojek and Angela McRobbie. However such a contribution is not to be acknowledged solely by the academy. Stuart Hall, before his death in 2014, contributed to a large array of television and radio programmes articulating his notions of a 'new left' seeking for social justice and a political intent of a different future to challenge the forces of neo-liberalism.

This event will explore Hall's media touch via the film by John Akomfrah entitled 'The Stuart Hall Project'. The film is to be utilised as a catalyst to debate how sociology, and the social sciences more broadly, may communicate to wide audiences to influence social change.

What you need to check before attending the event:

  • Are you studying Psychology with Sociology and/or a Criminology module as part of BA Health and Social Care course? If so, you will need to check your module learning rooms to see if your lectures are still taking place.
  • Are you studying on the BA (Hons) Criminology; BA (Hons) Social Work, BSc (Hons) Psychology; BSc (Hons) Psychology with Sociology; or BSc (Hons) Psychology with Criminology? You will still have scheduled teaching, seminars or you will be on placement. You are very welcome to attend our ACE Week events that do not clash with your scheduled teaching.
