Re-Imagining the University : Leeds EAN day conference

Date & Time: November 26th 10.00am – 5.30pm @ Leeds Metropolitan University

(FREE: But donations for speakers’ expenses/EAN activities are welcomed on the day)

The government has scrapped EMA, trebled fees and is cutting jobs, pensions and courses as it seeks to privatise education. During these difficult times, it is more important than ever that students and those employed within the education system stand together and fight against government cuts.

Leeds Education Activist Network is holding a free one-day conference at Leeds Metropolitan University under the banner ‘Reimagining the University’, where we will discuss alternatives to the elitism and austerity being enforced by this government in its continuing assault on further and higher education. We hope that the conference will allow us to consider and develop the ideological arguments that are critical to our resistance of government policies and agendas and to winning the support of those around us.

The conference will be held in the Leslie Silver Building at Leeds Metropolitan University (City Campus): Room LTB2 (See map below)
