Guardian’s Gary Younge to imagine a world without borders at SOAS Lecture Series

Imagine a world without boarders

Can you imagine what a world without borders would be like?

The Guardian’s editor-at-large Gary Younge will be at SOAS to paint a vivid picture of such a reality as part of the SOAS ‘World Turned Upside Down’ Lecture Series on 3 May 2018. 

There are few, if any, political commentators better suited to tackle the contentious debate: after several years of reporting from all over Europe, Africa, the US and the Caribbean, Younge was appointed The Guardian’s US correspondent in 2003, writing first from New York and then Chicago. In 2015 he returned to London where he is now The Guardian’s editor-at-large.

He is also an acclaimed author. His most recent work, Another Day in the Death of Americawon the J. Anthony Lukas Book Prize from Columbia Journalism School and Nieman Foundation, was shortlisted for the Helen Berenstein Book Award for Excellence in Journalism from New York Public Library, The Jhalak prize and The Orwell Prize for Books.

The format for the event will include a 20 minute talk from Gary followed by an ‘In conversation and Q&A with audience’, chaired by Professor Stephen Chan from SOAS University of London.
