Critical Conversation Cafes – open to London Met staff and students
Our Critical Conversation Cafes are an open and informal space, and a real opportunity to facilitate stimulating debate, critical reflection and awareness whilst discussing a range of topics, interests, passions and so on led by participants (individuals and interest groups). Please ensure that you read the Cafe Courtesies before registering and attending a cafe.
Take a look at recommended reading/viewing materials from the Critical Conversation Cafes.
Have you got an idea for a critical conversation?
If you would like to host a cafe, we would love to hear from you! Please get in touch with Gene Huie-Manneh, Janet Douglas Gardner or a Students' Union Officer. Sessions do not have to be rooted in academic theory and any member of staff or student in partnership with the Students' Union, can host a session. As the cafes are short, we suggest beginning with a provocation or stimulus for discussion. It could be an image, story, poem, personal experience, quote, news report or lesson topic.
