A keynote and conversation with Kenan Malik

Identity politics has become one of the defining – and divisive – issues of our age. But what do we mean by identity politics? Why have we become so obsessed by questions of identity? And how does the debate about identity relate to the wider debates that now dominate politics, on immigration, populism and diversity?

Bestselling author, journalist and commentator, Kenan Malik, unpicks the arguments around the politics of identity, tells its forgotten history, challenges the arguments of both right and left, and upends much of what we think we know of both our politics and our identities.

When: 6.30 for 7pm, Mon 1 Apr 2019

Do we still know what we mean by the cliché expression ‘liberal democracy’? Around the world, from the US to Australia, the so-called ‘Westminster model’ on which many democracies are based is facing strains. In this talk A. C. Grayling argues for the minimum conditions that any workable constitution requires to be genuinely democratic. A. C. Grayling CBE (UK)

Many of the international participants were – as you know – full of genuine praise not just for the fascinating way you blended such disparate but relevant content, but also for the smooth organisation of the conference, the warm hospitality, and the overall calibre of the event…
