Our Dialogue & Debate series launched in January 2020, to bring our work and ethos to new audiences online, alongside our regular programme of conferences, panel discussions, annual forums and interdisciplinary retreats.
These interactive discussions, involving public figures and experts from a variety of fields, bring the 'Cumberland Lodge model' to a public audience, on desktop or mobile, watching live or on-demand via our website and social media channels.
'Dialogue & Debate' responds to key themes emerging from our conferences and other activities, as well as pressing issues arising in society. It is co-hosted by our Programme Director, Dr Jan-Jonathan Bock, and our Chief Executive, Dr Edmund Newell.
As with all aspects of our work, we strive to involve younger voices and offer intergenerational perspectives on all the issues we address.
All the webinars in this series can be viewed via our 'Read, Watch, Listen' webpages.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently streaming fortnightly, with our presenters and guest contributors taking part via video-conferencing software.
To help inspire people to think and talk about the issues we address, we encourage audience interaction, via polls on social media and live questions to our panellists.
Questions can be submitted via our social media channels, either publicly or anonymously, as well as via our Vimeo channel.
We tweet about the series at #DialogueDebate
For those who prefer to listen to our 'Dialogue & Debate' conversations, we have launched a dedicated audio-only channel on SoundCloud, here.
