Writing the Cold War: the works of John le Carré

June 19 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


The novels of John le Carré have always sought to represent a seamier side to the world of espionage and the supposedly ‘glamorous’ life of a spy. Here, Dr Sam Goodman explores what le Carré’s novels say about Britain and Britishness in a time of declining international authority, shifting global politics, and the shadow of the Cold War.

The talk will be followed by a free screening of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.
