The Corbyn Effect: Two Years On at The World Transformed

Date:
Saturday 23 September 11:00 - 13:00
Venue:

Lawrence and Wishart is thrilled to be partnering with The World Transformed at their fringe conference, running alongside Labour Party Conference this September in Brighton. 

Join a panel of speakers for an interactive session on The Corbyn Effect: Two Years Onwhere we hope to dissect the rise (and fall, and rise again) of Corbynism within the Labour Party since Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership election. What does Corbyn represent? What are the reasons for Labour’s successes under Corbyn? What are the limitations/problems with the Corbyn project? What do we need to do to build on successes so far and achieve a Labour government able to transform the country at the next election? 

This session will also serve as the official launch of The Corbyn Effect (edited by Mark Perryman with a foreword by Paul Mason) a new collection of essays in which writers, academics and activists from across political generations explore the meaning, limitations and potential of Corbynism. Copies of the book will be on sale at this event, with panelists available to sign them.

Speakers:

  • Jeremy Gilbert, editor of New Formations and Professor of Cultural and Political Theory at UEL
  • Monique Charles, post-doctoral researcher in grime music
  • Florence Sutcliffe-Brathwaite, co-editor of Renewal journal and lecturer in twentieth century British history at UCL
  • Mark Perryman, editor of The Corbyn Effect (Lawrence & Wishart) and founder of Philosophy Football

The event will be chaired by James Stafford, co-editor of Renewal journal and lecturer in history at St Hugh’s College, Oxford University.
