Ask me anything with Danny Dorling
The well-known geographer and author is ready to answer your questions about class and social justice in the UK (or anything else, within reason)
We’re going interactive. Next week’s Fair Comment is given over to Professor Danny Dorling, the renowned social geographer (and member of our expert contributors network), and to you, our readers. We’re asking you to submit your questions to Danny by this Wednesday, for him to answer in next Monday’s edition of Fair Comment.
This is an experiment, and if it works well we’ll run this on a regular basis (perhaps once a month) with other members of our expert contributors network.
The idea is that each of these ‘ask me anything’ editions of Fair Comment will focus on a broad issue. With this in mind, we’d particularly welcome questions for Danny that focus on issues around class and social justice in the UK (which he has written about extensively, for example here), but will also take questions on wider issues.
Here’s some background on Danny:
Danny Dorling is Professor of Human Geography at the University of Oxford. He was previously a professor for a decade at the University of Sheffield, and before then a professor at the University of Leeds. His recent publications include the paperback edition of his book Slowdown: The End of the Great Acceleration and Why It’s Good for the Planet, the Economy, and Our Lives with Yale University Press and, jointly with Annika Koljonen, an updated paperback edition of Finntopia: what we can learn from the world’s happiest country with Agenda Publishing and Columbia University Press. He is a patron of the road crash charity RoadPeace, and in his spare time he makes sandcastles.
Please ask your question using our online form by the end of the day on Wednesday (19 April), to give Danny enough time to think about and answer them before we publish his answers in next Monday’s Fair Comment.
