Rights Wot Rights? presents newly digitised 80’s video archive and campaigning materials from TURC Video and Birmingham Trade Union Resource Centre. It will be introduced by Curator Yasmeen Baig-Clifford, Director of Vivid Projects who is overseeing the development of the ‘Birmingham Media Archive Project’; and Dr Chris Moores, Birmingham Fellow, Modern British History and historian of civil liberties activism in twentieth century Britain. His recent book Civil Liberties and Human Rights in Twentieth Century Britain (CUP, 2017) examines the relationship between local, national and transnational languages of rights and freedom and the political cultures around which civil liberties concerns manifested. Cathy Wade and Keith Dodds will introduce the work of interdisciplinary collective REPEATOR , who are exploring the alternative cultural history of the city, informed by historic activist practices, trade union resources and community actions.
