David Gurnham is an Associate Professor in Law at the University of Southampton, where he teaches Criminal Law and Violence and Sex in Law, Literature & Culture. His research and teaching interests lie in interdisciplinary and critical approaches to criminal law’s intersections with health, sexuality and language, and he analyses legal texts alongside literature, film and popular culture.

"Five debates a day sounds a bit daunting beforehand, but I really loved it. The speakers are so knowledgeable and passionate about their chosen topic, and the amount of time dedicated to questions from the audience was great as it really brought in alternative views."
