Making Hay: Professor Richard Wyn Jones to deliver a lecture at Hay Festival
15th February 2013
This year, staff from the School will be showcasing their world-leading research as part of the Cardiff Series, a small programme of lectures taking place at Hay Festival, one of the world’s most famous literary festivals.
Professor Richard Wyn Jones, Director of the Wales Governance Centre, will be joined by Professor Charlie Jeffrey of the University of Edinburgh, and Guy Lodge, of think tank the Institute of Public Policy Research at the festival this year, to showcase their work on the rise of a distinct English political identity.
Their lecture will discuss findings from a new, detailed survey of public attitudes in England. Building on work presented in early 2012 which demonstrated an increasingly distinct English identity, and growing demand for the political recognition of Englishness, this lecture examines English views about both the unions – UK and EU – of which England is a member, and considers whether either or both remain sustainable.
Running from 23rd May – 2 June, the festival attracts the most exciting writers, filmmakers, comedians, politicians and musicians, amongst others, to inspire, delight and entertain.
