Dr Kate Bradley is Senior Lecturer in Social History and Social Policy at the University of Kent and Director of Studies for Social Sciences BSc. She is the author of Poverty, Philanthropy and the State: Charities and the Working Classes in London 1918-1979 (Manchester University Press, 2009) and numerous articles on the history of criminal justice and community action.
She continues our series on the teach-outs taking place as part of the activities surrounding the UCU strikes at universities across the country. Teach-outs, she suggests, offer a deeper kind of engagement on the picket line, and that learning about the history of protest and struggle has a particular place in understanding how we got to where we are today.
