The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Auriel Majumdar will chair this in conversation discussion and Q&A session with Labour MP and author David Lammy about his most recent book, Tribes: How Our Need to Belong Can Make or Break Society.

A memoir and a call-to-arms, Tribes explores both the benign and malign effects of our need to belong. How this need – genetically programmed and socially acquired – can manifest itself in positive ways, collaboratively achieving great things that individuals alone cannot. And yet how, in recent years, globalisation and digitisation have led to new, more pernicious kinds of tribalism. This book is a fascinating and perceptive analysis of not only the way the world works, but also the way we really are.
