Join the editor and contributors of the essay collection “Abolishing the Police” for an exploration of anti-police theory and practice.

We’re very pleased to host this event on behalf of Dog Section Press, the publishers of Abolishing the Police, one of Housmans’ biggest selling titles of 2021 so far.

We’ll be joined by Koshka Duff, the editor of Abolishing the Police, and various contributors, as they discuss why we might want to abolish the police, what abolishing them would involve, and how it might be achieved. Koshka and panellists will also explore the rich existing traditions of anti-police theory and practice.

SPEAKERS

Koshka Duff is a lecturer in political philosophy at the University of Nottingham and campaigns against police strip search abuse.

Abolishing the Police contributors Becka Hudson, Eddie Bruce-Jones, Chris Rossdale and Sarah Lamble.

***Please note this event starts at the later time of 8pm***
