The Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities in collaboration with the Barry Amiel and Norman Melburn Trust present:

Gary Younge – All That Is Solid Melts Into Air – The politics of hope in a time of fragility

Right wing populism stalks Europe and has a representative in the White House. Our politics are destabilised by uncertainty while our economies are undermined by uncertainty. But, argues Gary Younge, the right is not ideologically in the ascendant and there are opportunities in this chaos for progressives.

This is the Barry Amiel and Norman Melburn Trust Annual Lecture organized in collaboration with the Birkbeck Institute for Humanities.

Welcome by Dr Alan Findlayson (Trustee, Barry Amiel and Norman Melburn Trust):
