Dr Daniel Varndell: Why Manners Matter

‘Etiquette’, a noted toastmaster once pointed out, ‘is knowing how to yawn with your mouth closed’. In an era increasingly dogged by a lack of regard for those with whom we disagree, this Tavern Talk tackles tact and tactlessness in the times of Brexit, #MeToo and Donald Trump.

Tavern Talks are a series of informal talks on intriguing topics from the University of Winchester's Faculty of Arts.

Tavern Talks are open to all who wish to participate. They feature short talks followed by opportunities for discussion. There is no charge for entry, though numbers are limited by the size of the venue.
