‘The Liberal Defence of Murder’, with Richard Seymour
7:30 – Thursday, 14th May
Wadham College, Old Seminar Room, Oxford
A ‘Cider and Socialism’ Event!
Seymour has recently had a book published under the same name, which has had praise lavished on it from commentators as diverse as ‘The Times, ‘The New Statesman’ and ‘The Independent on Sunday’. The book – as will his talk – attempts to deconstruct and critique the liberal discourses which justify and legitimate imperialism, and particularly the recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Seymour will also already be known to many of you as the author of the ‘Lenin’s Tomb‘ blog, one of the most popular and well-regarded political blogs around in Britain, and certainly the most eloquent of the UK’s socialist left.
