12 September 2017 | Leeds
The PaCCS/ESRC-funded project Representation of Transnational Human Trafficking in Present-Day News media, True crime, and Fiction will hold a one-day symposium showcasing some of the project partners’ research results, with findings split across the genres of news texts, crime fiction, and true crime documentaries.
The project welcomes feedback, and invited talks, from a group of especially invited speakers, amongst which, there are:
- Crime fiction writer Ruth Dudgall
- Journalist/writer/filmmaker Paul Kenyon
- Academic/writer/ Free the Slaves co-founder Professor Kevin Bales
Join practitioners, academics and policy makers investigating the ways in which transnational human trafficking is portrayed across a range of influential text types, and what implications this portrayal has for policy-related response. The Symposium participants include academics, writers, filmmakers and a range of human trafficking charity, institution, foundation, and media subject matter experts.
There is a small number of places available, invitations will only be extended to those specialised in the subject. To express your willingness to participate, please contact Dr Christiana Gregoriou at firstname.lastname@example.org briefly explaining why you are interested in attending this event.
