Be part of next year’s 200th anniversary of the Peterloo Massacre

07 Dec 2018

Call opens for submissions for impact and/or social engagement events.

The call is open for submissions for impact and/or social engagement events linked to the themes of Protest, Democracy or Freedom.

Anyone at the University is invited to organise an event to showcase research and activities as part of a commemoration that will receive national and international attention. Events do not have to be historically focused or linked to the UK, as the themes have been deliberately chosen to reflect contemporary issues.
