Policy & Politics lecture by Will Self on The End of Champagne Socialism
In association with the Festival of Ideas
For our 22nd Annual Lecture, Policy & Politics journal is delighted to invite Will Self to talk about the end of champagne socialism.
He will examine developments in thinking about socialism over the past half-century – what the rise of Corbyn tells us about British attitudes towards socialism (and by extension capitalism), and what the changes have been in how we conceive – and repurpose – the links between the personal and the political in times of accelerated change.
Will Self is an English novelist, journalist, political commentator and television personality. He is the author of ten novels, five collections of shorter fiction, three novellas, and five collections of non-fiction writing.
