This spring, the Department of History is hosting the first Festival of History. The Festival will include a series of free public events looking at the past and the ways we understand it – from the birth of modern sexual culture to the moral dilemmas of life in Soviet Leningrad.
The festival has been made possible thanks to a generous alumni donation and is being organised in collaboration with the Centre for Public Engagement. Free public events will run throughout the Festival and will include topics from the birth of modern sexual culture to the moral dilemmas of life in Soviet Leningrad. Robert Bickers is one of the Festival’s organisers, and the events will take place at innovative venues in the heart of the city, such as Hamilton House, M-Shed and Watershed.
