At Home in One's Past - Nostalgia as a Political and Cultural Force

At Home in One's Past - Nostalgia as a Political and Cultural Force

This event has finished Took place on: Tuesday, 5th Jun 2018

Demos has been investigating the growing influence of nostalgia in the social and political cultures of three countries - Great Britain, France and Germany. This event will present the findings of our research, including large suites of focus groups with citizens in each country and interviews with political leaders and journalists. We have also conducted new research into the role that nostalgia played in the EU Referendum, and the 2017 French and German election campaigns.

Through a lively and provocative panel debate, we will discuss why so many people are feeling disenchanted with the present, and apprehensive about the future - and whether this is encouraging people to look to the past as a time of safety and security. We will also explore how politicians can help to navigate change in turbulent times. 

Speakers:

- David Aaronovitch, columnist at The Times
- Catherine Fieschi, Director, CounterPoint and political analyst
- Claire Fox, Director, Institute for Ideas and panellist on BBC's Moral Maze
- Simon Heffer, columnist at The Telegraph and historian
- Chair - Sophie Gaston, Deputy Director, Demos

Cost: Free of Charge
