The politics of James Bond

James Bond matters! As the films enter their 50th year, POLIS is hosting a half-day workshop to discuss the Politics of James Bond (in the broadest sense of the word).

Topics for discussion at the workshop are:

  • Clive Jones: Will the Real James Bond(s) please stand up?
  • Stuart McAnulla: The World is Not Enough: Apocalyptic Politics in Bond
  • Graeme Davies: Threat perception and Bond
  • Nick Robinson: Fast Cars, Casinos and Crazy Despots! James Bond as celebration or critique of capitalism?
  • Faiz Sheikh: 'License to stereotype: othering in the James Bond film franchise'

Tea and coffee provided (we couldn't stretch to Martini's I am afraid!)

The workshop will take place:

On:  Friday 26 October 2012

At:   1.00-4.30pm

In:   Chemistry Lecture Theatre D

Add to Outlook calendar.

We hope you will join us for what will be a fun and informative afternoon to discuss and debate the importance of all things Bond.
