Welcome to the Field Day Podcast

In our current episode, we talk about how crowds present the authorities with a problem.

To control the crowd is the job of the police, and using force is pretty effective. But, as we hear in this episode, they also strive to control the atmosphere of crowds.

Listen to critical legal theorist Illan Wall on the atmosphere of crowds.

This episode is presented in association with the Dublin Review of Books. We heartily recommend the drb to supporters of Field Day. In the words of Seamus Deane: “The drb sustains a level of commentary on Irish and international matters that no other journal in Ireland and few elsewhere can reach.”
