Dragon Hall Debates

Dragon Hall Debates

Details

With an epidemic amongst young people in depression and anxiety, and policy-makers now looking at ways of addressing public wellbeing, we ask: are we living in a new age of anxiety? Political economist Will Davies of Goldsmiths, University of London will discuss what he calls ‘the happiness industry’; Tonia Mihill of MAP will explore why anxiety is so prescient in young people’s lives, and UEA’s Teresa Belton will talk about the reciprocal relationship between personal wellbeing and environmental sustainability.

The free Dragon Hall Debates series, presented jointly by the University of East Anglia and the National Centre for Writing, tackles a range of topical scientific, cultural and political issues, drawing on the expertise of UEA academics as well as guest thinkers, writers and commentators. Come along and hear from the panel, then join the conversation and have your say.

Suitable for ages 16 and above. Free and open to all.
