POLITICS AND THE MEDIA
Will Self, Julia Carne, Ian Parker
Chaired by: Anouchka Grose & Darian Leader
Since Donald Trump’s campaigning and subsequent election in the US, the media has been saturated with coverage of the man, his politics and interventions in both public and private space.
But beyond immediate condemnation and censure, what can we learn about contemporary society from the way in which responses to Trump have been articulated? Can some critiques reinforce the very positions they seek to contest?
And why the mixture of hatred and fascination that Trump so consistently generates?
