Newsnight's Paul Mason presents inaugural POLSIS Undergraduate Lecture

Lecture, entitled A Micro-History of Working Class Revolt, presented to students and staff from the Department of Political Science & International Studies.

On 03 March 2011, Paul Mason, BBC Newsnight’s economics editor, presented the inaugural POLSIS undergraduate lecture. Over 100 people turned up to hear Paul’s talk entitled Power to the People: A Micro-History of Working Class Revolt. The lecture was followed by question and answer session which, in turn, was followed by a drinks reception in the Aston Webb Rotunda.


This was the first in a series of lectures organised by POLSIS undergraduate students for undergraduate students.
