Cafe Sci:"Self-seeke­rs, madmen and poets"

Ruth Kinna

Loughborough University

William Morris’s description of nineteenth century activists serves as a platform to route to recover a neglected history of socialism, take inspiration from the aims and aspirations of unknown activists and helps us and make sense of contemporary global movements.

MEETING FORMAT: Our speaker talks, uninterrupted for 20 minutes, to introduce his topic. During a break to get drinks, the Hat goes round. Then there is an hour’s chaired question and answer session. Cafe Sci is funded by the Hat (no sponsors). We suggest a contribution £5 (waged) or £2 - £3 (unwaged). Full details here
