Episode 13: You'll Never Walk Alone - Remembering Hillsborough 1989

 

In this episode, we discuss the tragedy that took place at the Hillsborough football ground in Sheffield in 1989, the way the police and emergency authorities failed, and the way that failure was covered up. We explore particular narratives of class and regional identity that allowed for the cover-up to work.

 

The texts we refer to are:

State of Exception by Giorgio Agamben

Eichmann in Jerusalem by Hannah Arendt
