Twitter debate on Moral Panics - 12th Feb

Prof. Viv Cree has been invited to be the guest on a Twitter debate on Moral Panics.

The event will take place between 8pm and 9pm on Tuesday 12th of February and will be hosted by #SWSCMedia. Anyone wishing to participate should add the #SWSCMedia hashtag to their tweets, as well as the #moralpanics hashtag.

Gary Clapton will be helping Prof. Cree field tweets on the night and we would like to invite all interested parties to join us for the debate.

This activity is part of our ESRC sponsored work on moral panics, which involves colleagues from Social Work, Sociology, Social Anthropology, Social Policy, Law, Divinity, Education, History and Psychology. 

The  subject of 'moral panics' touches all these disciplines and is hugely topical just now, with new scares emerging every day.

You can find out more about this work and associated seminar series on our website and blog.
