World-leading expert on slavery is doing a Reddit AMA

Kevin Bales Reddit AMA

Kevin Bales, Professor of Contemporary Slavery at the School of Politics and International Relations, will answer questions about the global abolition campaign

On 8 May at 3pm British time, Professor Kevin Bales will sit down to answer questions about contemporary slavery on the popular social news and discussion website Reddit. Reddit maintains a forum dedicated to allowing its users to ask questions to renowned persons. President Obama and Bill Gates both participated in an AMA (Ask Me Anything) in the past. Now, University of Nottingham's own Kevin Bales will do the same in an effort to spread the word about how people can get involved in the global camapign to end slavery.

At the University of Nottingham, Kevin is launching two educational initiatives with this goal in mind: a free, massive open online course (MOOC) entitled "Ending Slavery: Strategies for Contemporary Global Abolition" and a Master of Arts programme called "Slavery and Liberation." The MOOC will start on 8 May, the day of the Reddit AMA, and is already open for registrations. The MA will begin this September and is available as a distance-learning course.

Feel free to stop by at the Reddit sub-forum r/IAmA in two weeks time and ask him anything!
