Exposed! Scandal and Shame Reconsidered

November 21, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Those things we want to discover and those we want to keep secret change over time as there are constant shifts in what is seen as scandalous and shameful. In the digital age, scandals are readily shrugged off or dismissed as fabrications. Bringing together a range of disciplinary perspectives, our expert panel will help make sense of these issues, speaking on topics as diverse as ‘dark money’ and corruption in British politics, shame and women’s bodies in modern Britain, women art criminals, and the critical need for exposure journalism in contemporary society.

The panel will be chaired by Suzanne Franks and speakers will include David Leigh, David Nash and Peter Geoghegan alongside a video essay from Penelope Jackson.

This event is part of Palgrave Macmillan’s Campaign for the Humanities. Refreshments will be provided.
