7th December: Who Stole the Future? Exploring Incel Victimisation

After a rather long break, we are back with an exciting line-up of online winter guest lectures. Like all of our events, these are online, free, and open to everyone. We hope to see you all there!

Guest Lecture: Who Stole the Future? Exploring Incel Victimisation

Guest Lecture: Henry Price and Emily Pratten, with special guests PGR Feminisms, 7th December, 1-3pm GMT, Online via Zoom

We kick start our winter programme with a delve into the fascinating but troubling world of Incels (or involuntary celibates) with our first guest lecture: ‘Who Stole The Future? Exploring Incel Victimisation’. We are delighted to welcome Henry Price and Emily Pratten who will be talking about their recent work in this area. You may remember their excellent paper in our special ‘Futurity in Crisis’ summer edition of Alluvium journal, ‘Lay Down and Rot: Incels and Lost Futures’. We will also be joined by special guests from the PGR Feminisms group for our discussion, so this session is not to be missed.

After Henry and Emily’s lecture, there will be a chance for questions, followed by an open discussion of the topic.
