In this episode Mark interviews a colleague from the University of Northampton, the Head of Humanities, Drew Gray. They explore the present controversies around universities as centres of 'indoctrination' and concerns around the so-called 'left wing agendas' of academics. They particularly focus on history, the teaching of history and the place of marxist history in the broader historiography of the subject. The humanities need to be protected because they are so central to the rich cultural life of any society. The future may look slightly different for historians in 'new universities' but either way the study of history and of the humanities must be available to anyone who wishes to study them, whatever their social class.
