Shy Radicals & Shrinking Violets

Shy Radicals & Shrinking Violets

Writing on the Wall Festival and Bluecoat are delighted to invite Hamja Ahsan and Joe Moran to the Bluecoat to discuss the politics and culture of shyness.

Ahsan in SHY RADICALS: THE ANTISYSTEMIC POLITICS OF THE MILITANT INTROVERT (2017, BOOK WORKS) has written a call to arms for the politically motivated introvert to quietly challenge extrovert-supremacist politics and assertiveness culture of the twenty first century while making real political change. While Moran in his social-cultural history of shyness Shrinking Violets (2016, Profile) charts shyness through the ages including early proponents such as Roman orator Cicero, the English folk singer Vashti Bunyan as well as different registers of shyness and faux cures for the condition.
