CRASSH

20 Years CRASSH

A year-long programme of events to celebrate CRASSH's 20th anniversary on the theme of Global Conversations. 

 

 


 

Listen to the CRASSH Thoughtlines Podcast

Thoughtlines is a brand-new monthly podcast series from CRASSH – the place where people gather to ask the big questions on who we are and why we live the way we do. In Thoughtlines we join that conversation and connect the dots in twelve different research journeys, from decoding the politics of your digital assistant to how consumer power helped end the slave trade. Wide-ranging, accessible, surprising and also deeply personal, Thoughtlines brings you the best of academic thinking outside the box. Episodes can be found on Soundcloud, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify as well as other podcast platforms.
 

 


 

Visit the Global Conversations online art exhibition

'Global Conversations' is an online exhibition created from an international call for art, in collaboration with curators from the Heong Gallery and New Hall Art Collection at Cambridge University. The exhibition will run until 31 December 2021.


 


 

The Global Conversations outdoor film festival

The outdoor film festival was held on 13 October 2021 on the Sidgwick Site, University of Cambridge. The programme contained films selected from over 1800 international submissions of short films. The screening was provided by Enchanted Cinema.
