In the year 2020 the world has been plunged into chaos at the hands of a seemingly uncontrollable pandemic. Perhaps as a consequence, this year has also highlighted the desperate inequalities that still exist within our society.

Professor Chantal Davies will explore whether such desperate times call for the use of targeted positive action aimed at addressing these inequalities. Chantal will break down some of the negative mythology and misconceptions around positive action and challenge participants to question whether the worst form of inequality is to try and make unequal things equal.

Lunchtime Lectures is a collaboration between Storyhouse and the University of Chester, providing an open platform for debate on a range of topics and fascinating subjects.

They take place on the third Tuesday of each month.

This lecture will be taking place on Zoom. The link will be posted on this page nearer the time.
