Harm Reduction Group Meeting
The Harm Reduction Group welcomes Dr Giulia Zampini from the University of Greenwich to discuss her work “People and Dancefloors”, which is a participatory research project looking at narratives of ordinary people, illicit drug use and dance culture in the UK. We will explore the tension between research, activism, and lived experiences. In advance of the meeting, attendees are encouraged to read Dr Zampini’s article We, ourselves and us: Tensions of identity, intersubjectivity and positionality stemming from the people and dancefloors project
Guilia joined the University of Greenwich in July 2016. She received her PhD in Social Policy from the University of Kent, having previously studied history, politics and socio-legal studies at UWE and Bristol University.
While at Greenwich, Giulia developed a passion for delivering higher education in prison. She is a trained facilitator of the Inside Out prison exchange programme, and built an education partnership with HMP Downview.
Before coming to academia, she worked in harm reduction services and drug policy advocacy.
