In partnership with Féile an Phobail, the New Lodge Festival and Intercomm, the University and College Union (UCU) at Queen’s offers a re-edition of its Alternative University in the Duncairn Centre, 10-11 August 2018.

Last winter, UCU undertook its biggest industrial action ever for fair pensions. Parallel to the picket line, union activists from Queen’s and UU mobilised to provide free lectures. The Alternative University was born: during four weeks, in packed rooms, they lectured on, and discussed, an incredibly diverse range of topics with the audience, such as arts and media, religion, Irish history, social inequalities, sectarianism, women’s place in contemporary society, the future of Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter, forms of political resistance, activism and participation, citizenship, migrants and refugees, and many more topics.

This free alternative university proved to be a real success among those on strike as well as their students in support of industrial action.

This re-edition of the Alternative University intends to spread this initiative to a wider audience and give to the public the opportunity to participate and enjoy a free, endearing and subversive discussion on activism in our community. Come to listen, talk back and think collectively with academics from all disciplines!
