Priory Road Complex Lecture Theatre, 12 Priory Road, Bristol, BS8 1TU
This public lecture by Professor Lois Bibbings covers legal cases from different historical periods. Lois explores the story behind each case, reflecting upon how law and society have evolved in the intervening years. The threads she draws from each story are interwoven to tell a broader tale about violence and non-violence, law, gender and history.
This is an inaugural lecture (meaning it marks Lois becoming a Professor) and aims to be engaging and informative. There will be polymythy, pictures and possibly puppets.
The lecture theatre has a hearing loop fitted and can be accessed from the ground floor or via lift.
Lois Bibbings is Professor of Law, Gender and History at the University of Bristol, UK. She has written about violence and non-violence in various time periods, from the 1850s to the present. Her research has looked at murder, cannibalism, assault, combat sport, domestic violence, sex crimes, executions, war resistance and conscientious objection to military service, for example. This lecture draws upon some of this work.
