random bits of fame

A piece that the independent journalist Dan Howell did on violence in crowds with a brief interview with me is available via;
What's covered is reasonably Ok, but my bits were heavily edited down, meaning the message that I wanted to get across- (that when considering crowd violence, you have to consider the social context in which it occurs) didn't really get covered, but hey ho.

I was also at a little do at the House of Commons recently, with a group of researchers from LondonMet showing off their research to MPs, and the link below shows a picture of the occasion. It made me chuckle that I was there on the riverside terrace inside the HoC eating posh tit-bits talking about my research, when the last time I was hanging around there was when I was observing the tuition fees riot outside Parliament last December!
