From this fascinating keynote panel discussion filmed by WORLDbytes volunteers at the Battle of Ideas at the Barbican, we learn what’s new about today’s political language. Worse than just slurs, slang and name calling, Frank Furedi explains how the emphasis in identity politics on ‘my experience’ as the only authentic source of knowledge, informs our language, shuts people out and shuts down debate. A lively audience get stuck in, raising key questions and what’s at stake.
The speakers are: Professor Frank Furedi, Sophia Gaston and Professor Dr Robert Pfaller. The chair is Claire Fox.
