English identity, English democracy and the governance of England
DATE: 9th March 2018
LOCATION: Room 12-05-08, Charles Street Building, Sheffield Hallam University, Sheffield S1 2NH
Recently, English identity has strengthened but local and British allegiances remain strong. Twenty years of ‘devolving governments’ have left England centralised, and regional disparities wider than ever. The alienation of many English people was measured in the Brexit vote. Can we square the demands of identity, democracy and good government?
Our speaker at this event is John Denham, Professor of English Identity and Politics at the University of Winchester. John is a former MP (for Southampton Itchen 1992-2015) and a member of the cabinet, 2009-10.
