About the event

We are pleased to announce that our first online event will be presented by one of our co-directors, Dr Roe-Crines based in the Department of Politics at the University of Liverpool. Dr Roe-Crines will be presenting a paper based on his research looking at how ancient rhetorical devices and strategies can be found in contemporary British political satire. The paper will last for approx 20 minutes which will be followed by questions.

The Network is co-led by Dr Roe-Crines, Dr David Jeffery and Prof Bruce Gibson. The Network is based at Liverpool, but seeks to bring together scholars with an interest in political communication, language, and party politics, broadly defined.

Joining details will be emailed to those who register for this event.
