We are looking forward to welcoming journalist and author, James Morrison along to discuss his highly anticipated new book The Left Behind: Reimagining Britain’s Socially Excluded. In The Left Behind, James grapples with the real human cost of austerity for neglected post-industrial communities and other marginalised groups across the world, and the stigmatising discourse that does little to serve them.
James will be in conversation with Dr Michael Rosie, senior lecturer in sociology at the University of Edinburgh and Editor of Scottish Affairs
Examines the ways in which the 'Left Behind' have been used to symbolise and foment social divisions in contemporary Britain
