In this episode, Wilf Kenning spoke to 2nd Year History and Arabic student Marco Dryburgh on the topic of Orientalism, and it’s relation to Colonial Britain.

Marco discussed the key features of Edward Said’s seminal theory, as well as explaining its relevance and pervasive performance in Colonial Britain, and how we can even see traces of colonial Orientalism today.

Article briefs are available for Issue 36: Religion, Ideology and Faith, and we will soon be announcing the date for the launch of Issue 35: Fractured Nations. For a hint of what you can expect, have a look at articles such as The July 14th Revolution , The Black Consciousness Movement and Deng Xiaoping which will all feature in the upcoming issue.
