Reimagining Englishness

At this meeting and launch event, Rupa Huq will speak on her new L&W book On the Edge: The Contested Cultures of English Suburbia.

The book is on how suburbia ain't what it used to be post-downturn/ after recent migratory waves as evidenced in the census and how Labour/ all politicians/ academics need to take it seriously but it's usually instead just derided as naff/ safe/ boring/ respectable. See attached press release and final-final cover. The final corrections went off to typesetter the before Xmas so it's literally about to roll off the presses.

Chair: Tristram Hunt MP.
Other speakers: Paul Kingsnorth (author and campaigner), Mary Creagh (Shadow Minister of the Environment).

Organised by the Labour Policy Review and Soundings journal.

Venue: Houses of Parliament, Committee Room 6 (room booked in the name of Jon Cruddas MP)
Time: 4.30 - 6pm
