Oxford Inspires webcast details confirmed
Posted on by jessia

Last month, Kinders alerted us to Philip Pullman’s Cultural Platform at Oxford Inspires. The details of the event have since been confirmed. The live webcast will take place Thursday, 4 March at 1700 GMT, “where Mr. Pullman will share his own perspectives on contemporary cultural issues and the value of culture in modern times.” Click here for more information.

Thanks again to Haku from our French community partner Cittàgazze for the tip!

    ‘Philip Pullman, the best selling author, has been threatened by religious zealots amid claims he should be “punished” for a controversial new book about Jesus Christ.’

  2. Skye says:

    Thanks for posting that, BlackSatinDancer.
    I’m still a bit confused about this book. I don’t really understand the purpose of it, I guess. I mean, I get that he’s trying to highlight the “dual nature of Jesus Christ,” but it just doesn’t seem that interesting to me…

  3. Skye says:


    “He was not afraid to throw out criticism of the film based on his book as well. … there were production decisions he really didn’t like, such as the slickness of the design in what should have been a far more dirty and haphazard London.”

  4. Skye says:

    A new interview! You do have to register to read it (which is free).

    Well if Philip Pullman goes to “hell”, he’ll be a pleasant companion for me and many (if not all) of us! I will certainly enjoy his company…imagine spending “eternity” in conversation with him and so many interesting other folks, such as Ayan Hersi Ali, Salman Rushdie, Nikolas Kazandakis!(pardon my spelling if it is wrong!)

  7. Skye says:

    “Pullman is currently working on a comic-strip adventure, which he is turning into a film script, and is trying to complete his next novel, The Book of Dust, reportedly a companion volume to the trilogy in which he will explain his negative portrayals of religion.”


  8. Eel says:

    So on NPR’s morning edition a couple days ago, I heard an interview with Pullman about the new book. I thought that SOMETHING more about it would be posted here. Is this site dead? I sure hope not.

  9. SerafinaTikklya says:


    The above is an URL for my local NPR station where you can listen to a 5 minute interview with Philip Pullman about “the Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ”.

  10. Thanks for the link to that interview – very interesting!
