Plymouth History Festival: Legal Tyranny
When?Start time: Saturday 9:00am (05 May)
End time: Saturday 3:00pm (02 June)
As part of the 2018 Plymouth History Festival, come and visit this free interactive exhibition curated by staff and students from the University’s School of Law, Criminology and Government and listen to public talks on the theme of social policy initiatives, state intervention and personal choice.
This historical case study will focus on local reactions in the Three Towns to laws compelling parents to have their infants vaccinated against smallpox before the age of six months. If you were poor the health implications of vaccination could be dangerous and even fatal.
Participants and audiences of the exhibition will be invited to consider the personal moral choices they would make when presented with real life historic dilemmas about their family’s health and well-being and the effect their decisions would have on both themselves and their communities.
