Re-imagining Human Dignity in Dark Times

Sir Harold Hood Memorial Lecture 2022

The ninth Memorial Lecture, organised by Pact (CSAN member), will be given by Anna Rowlands, Professor of Catholic Social Thought and Practice at Durham University.

Professor Rowlands will touch on themes explored in her recently published book, Towards a Politics of Communion, asking if it is possible to have dignity in the criminal justice system and what has to change to make it happen.

On the panel will be Cleo Metcalf and Paula Harriott, Pact trustees.

The event will also include –

  • Spoken Word Poetry, ‘I didn’t want to say what I’m thinking’, by Pact volunteer and former prisoner Lewis Gibson
  • The premiere of Pact’s latest film: Redemption Stories
  • A canapé reception provided by The Clink charity.
