London and Orwell - The Journalist

Exploring the ways in which Orwell represented the capital.

George Orwell is widely known for his novels but his career also incorporated a vast amount of journalism - essays, reviews, columns in magazines, war reporting and books of reportage. Much of this under-researched radical journalism explored London’s politics and social conditions. In this talk Richard Lance Keeble will examine the ways in which Orwell represented the capital – and how, in contrast, the countryside functioned symbolically in his journalistic imagination.

Richard Lance Keeble is Professor of Journalism at Lincoln University. He has written or edited 15 books and is the joint editor of Ethical Space: The International Journal of Communication.
