Will 2017 be 1984? Rethinking Orwell’s dystopia

1984 was conceived as a warning, not a prophecy. But are we now in Orwell’s dystopia? Decide with our panel of experts from Birkbeck’s Departments of Politics and English & Humanities, who will re-examine Orwell’s novel and its meaning in the brave new world of 2017. Speakers include Professor Jean Seaton (Prof Media History, University of Westminster), Ben Worthy and Caroline Edwards.
