As part of its Equality & Diversity events programme, Jesus College is delighted to be welcoming alumnus Sunder Katwala (1992, PPE) to give a talk on ‘Can Patriotism be Inclusive?’
Sunder is Director of British Future, an independent, non-partisan UK think-tank which works for ‘a confident and welcoming Britain, inclusive and fair to all’. He is the author of How to be a Patriot: Why love of country can end our very British culture war (HarperNorth 2023), which asks how we define patriotism in a diverse society, and offers a new perspective on understanding our collective identity. Drawing on the arguments of his book, Sunder will give a talk on whether patriotism can be supportive of a fair and inclusive society.
Sunder has previously worked as a journalist. He was general secretary of the Fabian Society think-tank from 2003 to 2011, and was previously a leader writer and internet editor at the Observer, a research director of the Foreign Policy Centre and commissioning editor for politics and economics at the publisher Macmillan.
His talk will be followed by a Q&A and drinks reception. This event is free and everyone is welcome to attend. For more information, and to book tickets, click on the link below.
