Battle of Ideas: Satellite event

The Battle of Ideas (BOI) is an annual debating festival held at the Barbican, in London, with more than 450 speakers and 100 debating over the course of two days. The Weidenfeld-Hoffmann  scholars have organised a satellite session that will focus on the degeneration of the political discourse - The rise of toxic politics: can we be civil? - which the organisers of BOI introduce on the festival website.

Looking at a world seemingly filled with slurs, angry social-media comments, inflammatory remarks about migrants, and nasty jibes about ‘stupid Brexiteers’ or ‘metropolitan remoaners’, many commentators have announced that we live in an age of ‘toxic politics’. The phrase supposedly captures the increasingly nasty, personal and hate-filled political discourse, as well as pointing to the corrosive effect of this on our political life.

The speakers of the sattelite event orginized by our scholars are still to be confirmed.

You can reserve a free ticket here.
