The Politics of Leadership
A seminar with Archie Brown, Alan Finlayson, Shirin M. Rai and Marc Stears
presented by the Centre for Cultural Studies Reasearch, University of East London
What is the nature of political leadership? Is ‘strong leadership’ really essential to political success? Is it a necessary feature of democratic politics at all? What constitutes effective leadership of movements, parties or ‘communities’. Is there such a thing as leadership in the cultural domain? What roles do rhetoric and narrative play in constructing our ideas about leaders and leadership?

Alan Finlayson is Professor of Political and Social Theory at the University of East Anglia
Shirin M. Rai is Professor in the Department of Politics and International Relations at the University of Wawick
