University of Oxford 2010: What can’t you speak about in the 21st Century?

  • Timothy Garton Ash (academic, writer, Orwell Prize-winning journalist)
  • Mehdi Hasan (senior editor – politics, New Statesman)
  • Douglas Murray (director, Centre for Social Cohesion)
  • Chaired by Jean Seaton (director of the Orwell Prize)

Ahead of this year’s Orwell Prize programme of events at the Sunday Times Oxford Literary Festival (20th-28th March 2010), we wanted to take a discussion to the University during term time. Thanks to Merton College, we ran a lively debate on ‘what can’t you speak about in the 21st Century?’.
