Lecture: The future of history - the next 175 years

at Marlborough Road Methodist Church, AL1 3XG

And now for something completely different!

Instead of a lecture: a discussion; whereby a panel of eminent historians will each share their personal perspective of the history of the past, present and future. There will then follow a chance for debate and audience participation.

Taking part:

Professor Margot Finn is Chair of Modern History at UCL. She is President of the Royal Historical Society which represents history as a discipline and historians as a group. The RHS promotes the vitality of historical scholarship through support for research and publication and advocates best practice in history teaching in universities and schools.

Professor Sarah Lloyd is a member of the History Department at the University of Hertfordshire and chair of the University’s Heritage Hub. She has worked on community histories of Hertfordshire and currently leads a national public engagement centre funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

Rebecca Sullivan, who since 2007 has been Chief Executive of the Historical Association (HA): ‘the Voice for History’ whose overarching priority is to advance the study and learning of history at all levels. The HA plays a vital role in supporting history in schools. Its research investigates the state of history education and allows them to talk to government and policy makers with an authoritative voice.
