Intellectual self-defence

We've just received the outline for a fascinating looking workshop on intellectual self-defence by Andy Bowman of Manchester University. If this is a newish concept to you (as it was to me), it's the idea that we need to be conscious of where we get indoctrinated from, and who by, and that we can develop useful tools to help defend ourselves from absorbing the kind of stereotypes, assumptions and prejudices that we're fed by the mainstream media, political parties etc etc etc...
Also, we have yet another confirmed stall, from Manchester Climate Fortnightly/Only Planet, local publications focusing on the issue of climate change.
