Will 2017 be 1984? Rethinking Orwell's dystopia

Venue: Birkbeck 43 Gordon Square, B04
Booking details: Free entry; booking required

1984 was conceived as a warning, not a prophecy. But are we now in Orwell's dystopia? Decide with our panel of experts from Birkbeck's Departments of Politics and English & Humanities, who will re-examine Orwell's novel and its meaning in the brave new world of 2017. Speakers include Professor Jean Seaton (Prof Media History, University of Westminster), Ben Worthy and Caroline Edwards.

This is a free event, but please reserve your place using our online booking form.
