Event Details

A Story of Failure: The mirroring of social and psychic exclusion among young men in a provincial English inner city


Simon Newitt, Chief Executive, Off the Record


This seminar will explore the anthropology of youth, masculinity, race and social class in the inner city. Drawing from the findings of a Participatory Action Research project that ran in St Pauls, Bristol, in the eighteen months immediately prior to the English riots of August 2011, the seminar will present original ethnographic data and encourage discussion and debate of the implications for the politics of mental healthcare, citizenship, democracy and children and young people's participation and rights.


Simon Newitt is Chief Executive at Off the Record (Bristol), a third sector provider of mental healthcare to children and young people aged 11-25 in the city. He has previously worked for NHS Bristol on the Delivering Race Equality in Mental Healthcare programme, and in Plymouth Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services as part of an award winning early years infant mental health team. Simon successfully completed his doctoral research within the School of Social Work at UCLan in May 2013 and periodically teaches at the University of the West of England, Bath and Bristol Universities.
