With the government’s controversial spending review coming this autumn it’s a good time to look at an interesting initiative conducted this summer on the excellent New Left Project. A range of commentators undertook an extended debate about the upcoming cuts: Richard Seymour, Sunny Hundal, Tom Denning, Kevin Blowe and Andrew Fisher.
As well as being a fascinating and timely debate in its own right, this represents an interesting idea about how to use websites to undertake substantive dialogues (as opposed to a succession of individuals article). We’d like to try and do something similar. If you have an idea about a debate for Sociological Imagination then please get in contact.
