PhD Candidate Tristan Johnson Provides a Brief Introduction to Political Correctness


There was a debate yesterday evening at Wolf Performance Hall. The motion was: "Be it resolved that political correctness has gone too far". Wolf Performance Hall is a 300 seat theatre and it was almost filled to capacity.

PhD candidate Tristan Johnson produced a historical context video on political correctness to open the debate. This video premiered at the debate and was released online a few hours later. You can view this video above or on Tristan's YouTube page Step Back History which "invites you to take a step back, consider the past and how it connects to today".

Also helping out at the debate was Public History MA alumni Rachel Pennington. She is London Arts Council's Public Art Specialist, and was there assisting with stage set up.

The winner of the debate was the side for the motion.
