Lockdown Lecture: Gary Younge
Gary Younge is Professor of Sociology in the School of Social Sciences and an award-winning journalist.
Gary’s Lockdown Lecture was recorded in May 2020. It’s in two parts: a question-and-answer session with third-year politics student Megan Ritchie in part 1, followed by his lecture in part 2. You can watch both below.
Since we know the Lockdown Lectures are popular with children, please note that Gary’s lecture (video 2) includes some very mild bad language at 4.32.
