Club Critical Theory: Food Culture Event

‘I was not oppressed by the university, but the teashop, acting as if it were one of the older and more respectable departments, was a different matter: Here was culture, not in any sense I knew, but in a special sense: the outward and emphatically visible sign of a special kind of people, cultivated people.’

Raymond Williams takes centre stage at CCT’s Food Culture event tomorrow (1.30pm start with a special animation movie showing on the Big Screen Southend outside the Forum from 12pm) at Southend’s Focal Point Gallery.
