Open book exists in the hope and fears of everyone excluded from academia by society’s mis-construction of their lives, through imprisonment, addiction, mental illness, homelessness or through the effective marginalisation of class and income. We write our own histories, sociologies, anthropologies and criminologies through direct experience, as well as by engaging with and contesting paradigms of academic writing. Come and learn more about the Open Book project through an exhibition of our own work, at Senate House, University of London.
This event is part of the University of London's hub programme, 'Ministry of hope and fear', for the Being Human festival.
As our Festival events are free, not everyone who asks for tickets comes to our events. To make sure we have a full house we allocate more tickets than there are seats. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people. Admission is on a first come, first served basis, so please arrive in good time for the start of the event.
