Phil Scraton makes a welcome return to Writing on the Wall after speaking at a number of previous festivals. As Professor of Criminology at Edge Hill University and then Queens University, Belfast, Phil has dedicated his life to studying the predicaments of some of the the most powerless groups in society, including Irish travellers in England, serving adult prisoners and jailed children, and those killed and injured at the Hillsborough stadium disaster.
At this event, Phil teams up with Eamonn McCann, one of Ireland's most renowned political activists. From the civil rights campaigns of the 1960s through the Battle of the Bogside and Bloody Sunday, and on to campaigns against the 21st century arms trade, Eamonn has been a key anti-establishment figure in Ireland. As well as political campaigning, Eamonn is also a writer and journalist, with a number of titles under his belt.
