Dr. Grace Huxford and Dr. Richard Wallace: Memories of Protest at Warwick
1-2pm, Room R0.03, Ramphal Building

Grace Huxford and Richard Wallace were part of the University of Warwick’s ‘Voices of the University: Memories of Warwick, 1965-2015’ project, which ran from 2012 to 2015 and involved interviewing over 260 current and former staff, students and local residents. In this talk, Grace and Richard will examine how interviewees have remembered protest during Warwick’s fifty-year history. Using interviews with students and staff, this talk will reflect on how the highly-publicised protests in the 1970s have been remembered and how anniversary culture prompts individuals to consider who owns institutional memories.

Theatre Performance: To Know How You Stand 3.0
8pm, Warwick Arts Centre, Helen Martin Studio

The IATL student ensemble, in collaboration with Fellswoop Theatre, return for a specially commissioned reprisal of To Know How You Stand. The piece was originally performed at Emerge Festival in November 2015, and it explores the university as a space for protest. Much has changed over the last five months and the piece has evolved with it, but the essentials (singing, dancing and A LOT of running) remain. This performance may contain eggs, toilet roll and optimism. See back of pack for terms and conditions.
