Sociologist Frank Furedi: The Rules of Fear

The way we fear and what we dread is mediated through social and cultural norms. This talk discusses the distinctive features of the European culture of fear at the present time. It explores the symbols and rituals through which modern fear is performed in everyday life.
‘Fear is often no longer about anything specific. It has become a perspective for interpreting human experience.’


A disturbing day about those anxious gut feelings that are currently resounding throughout the arts and society at large.
