Event Details

‘Has political correctness gone too far?’ That was the question up for debate at the Wolf Hall Debates event in October. For many, the discussion provoked more questions than it answered: such as, who gets to define what ‘political correctness’ even means in the first place? In this conversation, Jeff and James will revisit some of the questions from the debate, looking at the issue again through lens of an ever-shifting political landscape. Join us and come reflect on what we been learning and experiencing as a community over the last five months.
