Sunday 6th October – 4.45pm – Library downstairs
How are the conventional thinking and the orthodoxies of the past being challenged and changed in the contemporary world? How can we be sure about anything anymore? Three academics address these questions from the perspective of their own disciplines and research: Lesley McAra, Professor of Penology and Director of Edinburgh Futures Institute, University of Edinburgh; Brendan McGeever, Lecturer, Pears Institute for the Study of Antisemitism, Birkbeck, University of London; Arek Dakessian, Research Fellow, Institute for Global Health and Development, Queen Margaret University.
This final event of the 2019 festival has been moved to the library downstairs.
Chair: Ian Martin
Tickets for all Portobello Book Festival events are free and can be picked up from Portobello Library in Rosefield Avenue.
