Leading feminist thinker Lynne Segal believes that we have lost the art of transformative, collective joy. On the occasion of her passionate new book Radical Happiness, Segal calls for the re-discovery of the political and emotional joy that emerges when we learn to share our lives together.


This talk by Lynne Segal on her new research is accompanied by a selection of photographs illustrating the true nature of happiness found in others. Segal is also accompanied in conversation by Hilary Robinson, Professor of Feminism, Art and Theory at Loughborough University.
