Dr Tom Hickey

Another loose end... we're happy to confirm that Dr Tom Hickey will be joining Siobhan McGuirk of Reclaim the Uni to help lead the responsibility of intellectuals and academic workshop.
Dr Hickey is principal lecturer in Philosophy and Politics at the University of Brighton, Chair of the Brighton University & College Union and a member of the National Executive Committee of the UCU. He is speaking on behalf of BRICUP, the campaign for a boycott of Israeli academic institutions, and will be discussing the reasons behind controversial calls for an academic boycott of Israeli universities.
We also need to confirm that Hilary Wainwright of Red Pepper is unlikely to be able to attend this workshop.
