No to the Westminster bubble. Here at UEA we take a broader perspective on politics, culture and society.
We’ve got a brand new series of podcasts – Clare Precey and Alan Finlayson explore the themes that matter.
Three have been published so far:
- ‘Alternative Facts’? How the political message has changed in the digital age. How has the way politicians communicate their message changed with the digital revolution and what impact is that having on democracy and society? Featuring Dr Ben Little & Prof John Street. Hosted by Prof Alan Finlayson and Clare Precey.
- What will be Britain’s role in the world post-Brexit? Can Britain find its place as a ‘great global nation’ post-Brexit? And is our future security threatened or strengthened as a result? Featuring Prof Lee Marsden & Dr Suzanne Doyle.
- Trust and Money – what next for the news media? The news industry is trying to claw its way out of a financial crisis, while at the same time fighting to retain audience trust. What does all this mean for democracy? With Dr Sally Broughton-Micova, Dr Ben Little and Dr Marina Prentoulis.
- Will Brexit actually happen? Around 700 thousand people marched through London in October 2018 calling for a ‘People’s Vote’ on the final Brexit deal between the UK and the EU. But what are the chances of it actually happening? And even if it did, would the UK still end up leaving the EU? With Clare Precey, Alan Finlayson and Pierre Bocquillon. Featuring interviews with Anna Soubry and Bob Geldoff. The reporters were Sophie Wiggins and Aaron McMillan.
