Episode 3 - History Acts: Housing in Crisis
In this episode, we have recordings from a recent session of History Acts – a new radical history forum that works as gathering place for historians and activists. Their goal is to bring radical historians and contemporary activists together to find new ways for academics to engage with contemporary struggles, to learn from activists, and to see what expertise and institutional resources historians can use to provide active solidarity.
In this podcast you will hear key excerpts from 'History Acts 05 – Homes for All', featuring Eva and Millie from the Hackney Digs(a private renter support and campaign group), Professor Jerry White (Birkbeck) and Dr Florence Sutcliffe-Braithwaite (UCL).
