The King's Speech - new speaker added

We have added a speaker to our next sciSCREEN event - a screening and discussion of the Golden Goble winning The King's Speech on Tuesday the 25th January at 6pm.

John Evans (The British Stammering Association) has been added to our line-up of Dr William Housley (School of Social Sciences, Cardiff University), Dr Gary Love (School of History, Archeaology and Religion, Cardiff University), and Calum Delaney (Programme Leader and Head of Centre, Speech and Language Therapy, UWIC). The discussion will cover experiences of stammering, concepts of language and communication, speech pathology, political rhetoric and the mediated public sphere, and the impact of radio and newsreels on public life in the first half of the 20th century.

Tickets for the film can be bought from Chapter. The discussion is free.
