The Battle of Ideas: History Wars
This October, I participated in a panel discussion with Professor Jackie Eales, the President of the Historical Association, and Professor Frank Furedi, the author of Wasted: Why Education isn’t Education. It was hosted by the Institute of Ideas, and the debate was entitled ‘History Wars’. It was a very fruitful discussion, with many interesting points from the floor. We each spoke for around seven minutes at the beginning, and my ‘bit’ comes in at about 17:20 – though, obviously, I would recommend you watch the whole thing.
