Michael Chanan’s video blog: Teachers and Learners

FILM: Lecturers go on strike in Bristol.

 

The repercussions of the cuts in higher education are being felt in Bristol, where lecturers at the University of the West of England (UWE) have been forced to take strike action over threats to staffing. Michael reports on the strike and finds out what students who supported it think about the situation.

Michael Chanan is professor of film at Roehampton University (and previously taught at UWE). His video blog documents the emerging anti-cuts movement and will lead to a full-length film. You can watch previous instalments here.
