Living on the line: conceptualising liminal enactments

28 May 2013

In a series of public lectures the Centre for Citizenship, Identities and Governance at the Open University examines social sciences at a time of crisis, exploring its limits, reworking old concepts and developing new ideas and methods for critique, social justice and positive change.

In the keynote lecture on Tuesday 25 of June in Camden, London (6pm), Paul Stenner, Professor of Social Psychology at the Open University, will explore how during phases of crisis (financial, political, social, etc) more and more people are likely to find themselves ‘on the line’ and will discuss concepts such as resilience and becoming, criticality and resistance.
Discussants include Esrtrid Sorrenson (Professor of Cultural Psychology, University of Bocchum, Germany) and Vikki Bell (Professor of Sociology at Goldsmiths College)

Sign the petition: save our Freedom of Information

The UK government is running a secretive unit inside Michael Gove’s Cabinet Office that’s accused of ‘blacklisting’ journalists and hiding ‘sensitive’ information from the public. Experts say they’re breaking the law – and it’s an assault on our right to know what our government is doing.

We’re not going to let it stand. We’re launching a legal battle – but we also need a huge public outcry, showing that thousands back our call for transparency. Will you add your name?
