And the final in this little series of new announcements for Greenbelt 2011: Dreams Of Home is the eminent political thinker Maurice Glasman.
As a champion of community organising, a quiet intellectual, a Jewish family man, and one of the most influential political thinkers in the UK today, Maurice Glasman comes to Greenbelt this August to share his insight and vision. Convening a session in the Kitchen on the afternoon of Sunday 28th, he'll also then sit on the second of two Big Society panels we're hosting at the festival this year.
The Director of the Faith and Citizenship Programme* and senior lecturer in political theory, Maurice is - in partnership with Dr Luke Bretherton at King’s College London (another Greenbelt speaker this summer) - researching the relationship between citizenship and faith and the limits of the market.
And all this from a comprehensive-school-educated lad, born and raised in Walthamstow.
