Futures of the Americas

Activism in the Americas: resistance and representation across borders

Chair: Dr Nicholas Grant (UEA)

Town Close Auditorium, Norwich Castle, Norwich

From #BlackLivesMatter to #MeToo, global activism has reshaped how the personal and social collide.  What can movements for justice and recognition across North and South America tell us about how societal change happens?   

Research at UEA digs deeper into the stories underlying the most pressing issues across the contemporary global world. Join us in the heart of the city-centre, for a new series of exciting panel discussions exploring the key challenges and hopes for the new futures of the Americas
