26th of March, 1pm: James Heartfield


James Heartfield writes about the things that make him cross, and that make him laugh.

In 2005 he wrote ‘Let’s Build! Why we need five million new homes’ – a warning about the burgeoning housing crisis that sadly was ignored.

He also exposed the hype around ‘creative Britain’.

In 2010 he wrote Green Capitalism – about the snake-oil salesmen that scare us into giving them money.

More recently James has been working on historical research, and published ‘The Aborigines’ Protection Society 1836-1909′ with Hurst in 2011, and an ‘Unpatriotic History of the Second World War’ with Zer0 Press last year.

His ‘European Union and the End of Politics’ is published by Zer0 this May, and he is working on a history of the ‘British and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society’ for Hurst.

James teaches at Arcadia University, and also at Queen Mary’s University of London
