Big Brother. The Thought Police. Doublethink. In our age of misinformation, fake news and surveillance, audiences around the world are rediscovering George Orwell’s dystopian vision of the future, Nineteen Eighty-Four. 70 years on from its publication, Professor of English Literature David Dwan, digital culture and surveillance expert Btihaj Ajana and journalist and author Dorian Lynskey delve into one of the most important novels of the twentieth century and consider why it is still frighteningly relevant to our world today.
