Event description

Description

Featuring: David Astle, Author & Daniel Midgley, Linguist


Resilience is a word commonly used and hard to avoid. It can be a millstone as much as it is a milestone, asking us to spring back, thrive and rise against misfortunes rather than weathering the storm. Wordsmith David Astle and linguist Daniel Midgley unpick the etymology and currency of the word, exploring why and how it’s become a secret playbook for ‘getting on with it’.
