This paper is a published version of a presentation I gave in 2015 at the IAFOR MediAsia conference in Kobe, Japan. Speaking at the time of Spectre's release worldwide, my paper discussed this film's apparent shift in themes and ideas from its predecessor, Skyfall, and the socio-political context that may have influenced this. Having previously written about Bond's national identity in Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace and Skyfall, my 2015 presentation attempted to look more widely at the relationship between the ideologies in Bond films and contextual socio-political factors. As such this paper provided what I hoped was an accessible discussion of this concept with opportunities to explore aspects in further detail as I moved forward with my research interests and ambitions for PhD study.
