Anthony Schrag: ‘conflict social conflict’

Toby Lloyd and Andrew Wilson: ‘Convention, Habit or Custom’
(The NewBridge Project, Newcastle)
Bringing together researchers from diverse subject areas, this event will consider how we see, claim, embody, inhabit or think about ‘difference’ in varying spaces and places, questioning both why it is we persist in the endeavour to articulate ‘difference’ and how we choose to represent and work with those perceived as dissimilar to ourselves.
Through discussion, we aim to share insights and approaches, explore and address new questions and find new synergies, points of contact and collaborations. We warmly invite you to join us!
No need to book – all are very welcome
Please join us for coffee and cake at 12.30 and a wine reception from 4.30
