BBC4 Interview with Stuart Hall
The Prime Minister recently criticised what he called 'state multiculturalism' and said it had failed, arguing that Britain needs a stronger national identity. Is it time to turn our backs on the multi-cultural idea? And what would a stronger national identity mean to people who feel at the cultural margins of our society? As the politicians debate, Laurie Taylor speaks to Britain's leading cultural theorist, Stuart Hall. They discuss culture, politics, race and nation in a special edition of Thinking Allowed.
Producer: Charlie Taylor.
Stuart Hall is a British cultural theorist, Professor Emeritus of Sociology of the Open University (UK) and former chair of INIVA whose work has been highly influential in media and cultural studies in the UK.
