Manchester Metropolitan is an official partner of The Conversation website – a fantastic and high-profile media outlet for academics to provide news analysis and commentary.
In February, four academics from the University featured on The Conversation:
- Kerala was a beacon of hope for India on gender issues, but things are changing for the worse
Shoba Arun, Manchester Metropolitan University
The alleged sexual assault of a well-known actress in Kerala has sparked outrage and exposed serious gender issues at the heart of the society.
- SS-GB: why the renewed obsession with alternative Nazi histories?
Sam Edwards, Manchester Metropolitan University
Why do alternative histories of a Nazified world again have such commercial and cultural traction?
- Why so many singers sound American – but British grime artists are bucking the trend
Rob Drummond and Erin Carrie, Manchester Metropolitan University
When British singers step up to the microphone many adopt an American accent. Grime is the exception.
The Conversation is an increasingly invaluable resource among the global university community and Manchester Met has joined this select group. It is a collaboration between editors and academics to provide informed news analysis and commentary that is free to read and republish. As a partner, the University will have greater opportunities and daily requests for expert analysis via the Press Office.
Academics from the University that have been involved have benefited from featuring on The Conversation, with articles being republished in other languages and a range of publications including The Independent and The Huffington Post.
