Cara Courage interviewed on the Today programme

 

 

the-archers-coverCara Courage, editor of The Archers in Fact and Fiction: Academic Analyses of Life in Rural Borsetshire, has been interviewed on Radio 4’s Today programme about the Academic Archers 2017 conference. Please click here to listen (the interview is at 1h 43m 22s).

 

If you have ever wondered about the ethical implications of Dr Richard Locke’s affair with Shula Hebden Lloyd, or whether the ergonomic design of tractor seats could have prevented Tony Archer from getting a bad back, then this book is for you. Leading academics from across the United Kingdom use storylines from BBC Radio 4’s The Archers to examine life in rural Borsetshire, bringing their academic research to new audiences. Is Lynda Snell a middleclass warrior? Can Rob Titchener be compared to Iago? The irreverent but thought-provoking contributions will have you laughing and thinking.

 

The book is available for purchase here.
