Events update

In October 2017, Andrew spoke at the University of Middlesex on the topic of Black student success, as part of Black History month. In December 2017, Andrew took part in an all-day round-table at the Pears Institute for the Study of Anti-Semitism, on the theme of 'Denial'. In January 2018, Andrew will take part in an event at the British Film Institute (as part of their Ingmar Bergman Retrospective) on the subject of Bergman and the aesthetics of kinship and attachment. The film & anti-psychiatry symposium Andrew organised in 2015, Sanity, Madness and the Family / Family Life: An Urgent Retrospective, will appear at the start of 2018 as a special issue of the Journal of Psychosocial Studies. You can listen to an audio podcast of the original event in Birkbeck Cinema here. Supported by Birkbeck Institute of the Moving Image (BIMI) and London Campaign Against Police and State Violence (LCAPSV), Andrew facilitates the regular Saturday afternoon 'Fruitvale Film Club' at Birkbeck Cinema, a cinephile sharing space for people disproportionately affected by police and state violence, and their allies.
