Lecture: The Future of History: the next 176 years
April 20, 2021 7:45 PM - 8:45 PM at Zoom
Speakers: Prof. Margot Finn, Prof. Sarah Lloyd, and Rebecca Sullivan.
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.
Sarah Lloyd has worked at universities in Australia and the UK. Her interests span 18th century British social history, community heritage, and the politics of history today. Between 2014 and 2019, she was Director of the ‘Everyday Lives in War’ Engagement Centre funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council to link academic and community research into the First World War.
