David Goodhart: The Road to Somewhere

14th October 2017, 13:30 to 14:30, Durham Town Hall

Durham Book Festival
Chaired by Vice Chancellor of Durham University, Professor Stuart Corbridge.
In the wake of Brexit Britain and Trump’s America, David Goodhart conducts a timely and compelling investigation into the political and moral fault-lines that divide us.

The Road to Somewhere considers an emerging global politics where the traditional Left/Right divide has been challenged by a new division: between the mobile – achieved– identity of the people from Anywhere, and the marginalised, roots-based identity of the people from Somewhere.

David Goodhart was a correspondent for the Financial Times for twelve years before founding cultural affairs magazine Prospect.
