HISTORY ACTS - ANTI-FASCISM
TUESDAY 16 APRIL 6PM-8PM

Keynes Library, Birkbeck School of Arts
43 Gordon Square, London WC1H 0PD

An opportunity for historians with an interest in anti-fascism and the far right to engage with activists.

History Acts workshops are led by activists, who give a short talk or presentation about their work. Historians working on a relevant topic will then respond, before opening it up to group discussion.

Free entry, and open to all: historians, students, and anyone interested in how history can work towards social change!

Our panel:

Activists
