Liverpool Hope scholar Dr Anthony Ridge-Newman gave a guest talk at Oxford University on 'Brexit, British Politics and International Media'.
Dr Ridge-Newman unpacked the notion that Britain and its political leadership are in 'crisis'; and examined whether the framing of Brexit as a 'catastrophe' has credibility.
The lecture was followed by an hour of questions, debate and engagement with some of Oxford's leading academics.
The event was convened by Professor Agnès Alexandre-Collier of Maison Française d'Oxford and Université de Bourgogne Franche-Comté; and chaired by discussant Dr Alexandra Borchardt, Director of Leadership Programmes at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, Oxford University.
Later this year, Dr Ridge-Newman will give guest lectures at Melbourne University and Australian National University. He is a senior lecturer in Liverpool Hope’s School of Humanities; convenor of the Political Studies Association's Conservatism Studies Group; and founding Chair of the Tory Research Impact Network. He has published three books on British politics and the media.
