Talks@Watershed Summer Series ~ Monday 27 June 2005 18.30

The Summer Series at the Watershed continues with a talk by Professor Paul Hoggett (Professor of Politics at Bristol UWE) and Hen Wilkinson, Director of Community Resolve.

The talk entitled, ‘Race, Identity and Conflict in Bristol’ is the fourth in the Summer Series of talks organised by the Centre for Critical Theory at the University of the West of England.

Professor Paul Hoggett explains, “Bristol has a comparatively small but diverse array of black and minority ethnic communities concentrated in central and eastern parts of the city. Conflict between these communities and the established white population cannot simply be reduced to racism along ‘black/white’ lines but has more complex sources and dynamics.”

In this talk, Hen discusses her experience of a conflict resolution project based in Easton, and Paul will make links to recent debates on identity and community.”

Tickets from Watershed box office as places are limited on 0117 92 75100.
