George Orwell's novel Nineteen Eight-Four (1949) was conceived as a warning, not a prophecy. But are we now in Orwell’s dystopia? Decide with our panel of experts from Birkbeck’s Departments of Politics and of English & Humanities, who will reexamine Orwell's novel and its meaning in the brave new world of 2017. Speakers include Dr Ben Worthy and Dr Caroline Edwards of the Centre for Contemporary Literature. This event forms part of Arts Week 2017.
