New podcast: ‘deplorables’ and the deep web

09 June 2021

Today we’ve released our 17th podcast. It differs from our previous editions. Rather than having a panel of experts, we hear from a single colleague who delivers an individual talk. The speaker is Prof Alan Finlayson, Professor of Political & Social Theory at UEA, 

His talk is taken from our conference 2021 and looks at the rise of extremist movements on the internet, and the challenge they provide to political and intellectual systems. He describes the idea of ‘political theory in the wild’, and how important it is to go beyond the seminar room to engage with disruptive and divisive individuals and movements.

To listen to the podcast, and to catch up on previous editions, go to our dedicated podcast webpages, here.
