The 'Histories of Activism' research group at Northumbria University is pleased to announce two forthcoming lunchtime sessions. These are one-hour meetings, consisting of brief and relatively informal presentations, with plenty of scope for discussion. We’ve deliberately conceived these sessions as bringing together scholars from different disciplinary background.
