War & The Politics of Outrage at 70 Oxford Street
Leicester University’s Dr. Jamie Johnson comes to 70 Oxford Street this Wednesday afternoon for a lecture that will cover the length and breadth of our current political situation. Drawing from the work of French philosopher and cultural theorist Jean Baudrillard, Johnson aims to explain how the constant cycle of scandals blighting politics actually fails to hold the powerful to account, instead providing cover for the same behaviour it aim to expose, and creating a situation where actions that might’ve been career-ending in a previous generation are now considered business-as-usual. Booking ahead for this is essential.
