Stuart Hood: Twentieth-Century Partisan

This is a discussion of the life and work of Stuart Hood (1915-2011). Highlighting Hood’s experiences fighting with the Italian Resistance in the Second World War, contributors discuss Hood’s multi-faceted post-war achievements: as a broadcaster who presided over a period of unprecedented creativity at the BBC; as one of the founding figures of media studies; as the translator of over 40 works from Italian, German, French and Russian; and as the author of the acclaimed war memoir, Pebbles from my Skull, as well as eight well-received novels.

The event concludes with the launch of the new publication, David Hutchison and David Johnson (eds), Stuart Hood: Twentieth-Century Partisan (Cambridge Scholars, 2020).
