Description

20 Years CRASSH – Anniversary programme

‘Global Conversations’ was a year-long programme of events, put together by staff and researchers at CRASSH to celebrate the centre’s 20th anniversary.

A programme of special events was launched, the highlights of which you can watch in playlist below. The CRASSH team also created a series of playlists from our archive,  released the Thoughtlines podcast with monthly episodes throughout the anniversary year, and launched competitions for film, art and writing, which culminated in an online exhibition, an online publication, and an outdoor film festival.

Podcast & competitions


Thoughtlines podcast logo with pink soundwave.The Thoughtlines podcast – thinking outside the box

Thoughtlines is 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.

The Global Conversations publication

This collection draws together the winners of the Global Conversations writing competition mounted by CRASSH in 2021. By turns angry, pained, wry, elegiac and meditative, it is itself an opulent colloquy between writers of poetry, fiction and criticism from all over the world.
