What’s wrong with political correctness?




Location: BG02, enter via main university entrance in Northampton Square

We live in an age where free speech, according to some, is increasingly at odds with political correctness. But what’s wrong with political correctness and does it need defending? Join the Department of Journalism and our panel of expert witnesses for a vigorous debate on the history of political correctness and the so-called ‘free speech crisis’.

Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, Sunday Times columnist and author of In Defence of Political Correctness.
Peter Hitchens, Mail on Sunday columnist and author of The Abolition of Britain.
Andrew Doyle, Spiked columnist and author of Woke: A Guide to Social Justice.
Chair: Dr Mark Honigsbaum, Lecturer in Journalism, City, University of London.
