Event: Remembering Stuart Hall

Articulating Inspiration: Remembering Stuart Hall

December 5th  2014

Full day event: 10am - 4pm

2101 Vari Hall - The Sociology Common Room


On February 10, 2014 renowned cultural theorist and sociologist Stuart Hall passed away, leaving behind a three decade-long legacy of critical thought. In theorizing and re-conceptualizing the meanings of the social and cultural Hall’s contributions widely extend throughout the fields of sociology, cultural studies, anti-racist theories and diaspora studies while also taking shape in activist practice surrounding the New Left.


By way of commemorating Hall’s life and work this full-day event will allow students and scholars at York to both discuss his scholarship and share the ways it continues to shape, inspire and interrupt how we approach our own work and lives.
