There is a new force jolting economies, transforming political parties, swallowing newspapers, eclipsing experts and dismantling corporations. This new force is ripping down traditional seats of power, but at the same time redistributing that power to new, mysterious places, in new, mysterious ways. Research Director at Demos, Carl Miller, takes us on a journey exploring this power and exposing the centres of control in the world today. Everyone eats, and the choices we make reflect who we are and what we believe – and that’s as true for the Victorians as it is for us today. Drawing on research from her first book, The Greedy Queen: eating with VictoriaAnnie Gray explains how food history helps us to get new perspectives on even the most well-known figures. She’ll look at the myths we still perpetuate about food in the past, and explore what these mistaken beliefs say about society today. This is history that is as fascinating as it is delicious! Actor turned critically acclaimed author Martyn Waites will take us on a journey into the crime fiction genre. From an exploration of its roots to the psychology of its place in our modern world, Martyn reveals some of the surprising ways this popular literature can contribute to easing some of life’s most difficult experiences, like depression and anxiety.
