Tuesday, 12 November 2019 Dr Stevie Simkin: Trigger Warnings 

In recent years, many teachers have removed sensitive texts from their syllabi, as heated debates about “trigger warnings” have become routine in film education. Stevie reflects upon his experience of teaching films that could be considered potentially “triggering”, how his approach to teaching them has evolved, and how students’ responses to them have changed. 

Stevie is Reader in Drama at the University of Winchester and has published extensively on controversy and censorship in cinema.
