This event has been postponed, we hope to announce a new date soon. LSE apologises for any inconvenience caused.
Weaving together seemingly disparate stories from across the country, New Statesman editor Jason Cowley investigates how England has changed so much over the first two decades of the twenty-first century.
In so doing he not only develops a clear analysis of how and why the country has become so divided, but also paints a moving picture about what it means to be human in an age of globalisation. Most importantly, he shows how the pandemic revealed the best of who we are and why there is genuine hope for the future in an era of heightened English national self-consciousness.
