Next steps for our group:

Finalise the selection of speeches

Complete our own individual research

Meet next week as a group and consolidate our ideas within our presentation

Potential Structure for our Presentation:

Context

1. Historical

2. Geographical

3. Close analysis Literary, Classical

4. Bibliography

In the upcoming two weeks [completed by the 20th March]: start writing up the presentation.

For the presentation itself: choice of doing a powerpoint: Best to use. If we don’t then the structure is really important. 5 mins each. Gives structure to what you’re saying.

Not too much text, use to clarify what you’re saying, support what you’re saying. Visuals. Pictures of Farage??

Keeping pace and focusing audience.

Mixture of images and quote from speech.

Conclusion.

What they say together. Interdisciplinary focus. Think about broad outline: list of key themes. What we’re aiming for.

Have the information and the analysis by when we meet on:

Wednesday 8th, 2pm– Liberal Arts common room/ maughan- book a room.

Next meeting with Sophie March 20th at 9am – a week before the presentation (need to have written by then). Trial run for speech.

Primary Sources:

Speeches:

2013 speech (http://blogs.spectator.co.uk/2013/09/nigel-farages-speech-full-text-and-audio)

Immigration speech just before referendum (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2k422Kc-9DE&t=336s)

Victory speech (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLCb1cGROAw)

Interdisciplinary focus – Looking at the where and when (Geography and History context) versus who (close analysis of what Nigel Farage is saying) in order to understand how Farage and Brexit were given a platform to speak and be heard→ benefit of being interdisciplinary is the ability to understand and consider these different factors.
