Brexit, Identity and the Popular Politics of Resentment
Dr Ipek Demir, University of Leicester, will discuss contemporary frictions over difference and identity, including multiculturalism, race and the rise of white nationalism. She’ll examine how the backlash against loss of privilege and multiculturalism, which has been simmering over the last decades, can help us contextualise the politics of resentment and Brexit.
Café Culture North East welcomes you to caféstyle thoughtful public discussions on culture, politics, philosophy and science. Open to all. No prior knowledge needed, just a like-minded desire for convivial and lively banter in an inclusive, welcoming setting. Events are free. Donations welcome.
Events run 5:30-8pm (Talks begin at 6pm)
