Amol Rajan with Jude Browne, Ian Goldin and Elif Shafak


Hay Festival 2021, 

In a time of uncertainty, Rethink offers a guide to a much-needed global 'reset moment', with leading international figures giving us glimpses of a better future post-pandemic. Each contribution explores a different aspect of public and private life that can be re-examined. Collectively, they offer a roadmap for positive change after a year of hardship. Broadcaster Amol Rajan is joined by Prof. Jude Browne, Director of the University of Cambridge Centre for Gender Studies, who will be Rethinking Responsibility. Prof. Ian Goldin, whose post Covid book Rescue proposes how we should use this crisis as an opportunity to change radically and for the better. Writer and academic Elif Shafak, whose upcoming novel The Island of Missing Trees is published in August, is Rethinking Uncertainty. Based on the hit BBC podcast, Rethink gives us the opportunity to consider what a better world might look like.
