Stuart Hall

To mark the death of cultural historian Stuart Hall, another chance to hear his extended conversation with Philip Dodd, which was first broadcast in December 2004.

To mark the death of cultural historian Stuart Hall, BBC Radio 3 is broadcasting his extended conversation with Philip Dodd which was first broadcast in December 2004.

Obituaries for Stuart Hall last week called him the "god-father of multi-culturalism" and some credited him with coining the term "Thatcherism" in the critiques he wrote.

In the interview he discusses the influence of his upbringing in Jamaica, his view of progress and capitalism and the relationship between past and present. We also hear from literary theorist Professor Terry Eagleton, Barbadian novelist George Lamming, Professor Michael Rustin - who edited Soundings Magazine with Stuart Hall.
