Students in Debt event at Goldsmiths – Thursday 12 November

November 8, 2015

Goldsmiths Political Economy Research Centre is hosting an event on Thursday around student debt.

This afternoon event seeks to educate students about the fee-loan regime in order to politicise debt and discuss of how we can resist indebtedness among students. Bringing in experts, we ask: what are income-contingent loans, who profits from your debt, how does the experience of having debt affect student wellbeing and life chances, and in what ways do fear of debt and the types of loans that are sold to students perpetuate inequalities? We also hear from activists on how debt can be resisted and how we can move from the idea of individual responsibility to collective action.
