This year’s Battles in Print reflect the range of topics being discussed at the Battle of Ideas festival weekend, from the politics of privacy to the wonder of human flight, and include two very different perspectives on relativism in literary criticism from two English undergraduates at Oxford and Cambridge, an interview with author and former MP Martin Bell discussing the expenses scandal, and three essays on energy from strand sponsors the EPSRC. A further round of BiPs will be published after the festival itself.
