Dialogues in Politics and Culture
6 pm, May 15th, Broadcasting Place (Opposite the Fenton)

‘The Thatcher Moment’
This is a round-table discussion about the significance of Margaret Thatcher’s legacy.
Matthew Caygill, Pamela Fisher and Alex Nunn (all Leeds Met University) will each speak for up to 15 minutes.
Matthew will be looking at the significance of the debates about the death and commemoration of Margaret Thatcher: what does it tell us about politics today?
Pamela will be looking at the impact of Thatcher on the dichotomies between the public and private and between economic and social/caring activities - often to the detriment of the latter.
Alex will be looking at the overall legacy of Thatcherism.
Plenty of time for discussion.
