This year’s symposium will be centred on the theme of ‘Progress and Degeneration’. In the radically changed political and cultural environment that has emerged globally in the last few years, the discourse of progress underpinning many of the traditional narratives of western change and development has come to be increasingly questioned. The phenomena of ‘post-truth’; the re-emergence of nationalist politics; the increasing conflict between corporate and environmental values; the breakdown of established political alignments, as witnessed most clearly in Brexit; and the rise of information as the battleground upon which ideological struggles are waged.
