Dr Harry McCarthy (Jesus) is featured on an upcoming BBC Radio 4 programme on teaching novels in the contemporary university (2 November, 11.30am)

The second in a three-part series titled Pride or Prejudice: How We Read Now and presented by Professor Abigail Williams (University of Oxford), the programme explores the reading and teaching of novels in an era of content warnings, cancel culture and calls to decolonise the curriculum. Dr McCarthy is one of several academics who contributed to the programme, sharing thoughts on reckoning with our literary heritage and making space for the discussion of difficult topics in the twenty-first-century classroom.
