Magna Carta Lecture 2019

Chapel

Dr Nicola Stacey
Director, Heritage of London Trust

London has been a centre of dissent over centuries and these histories are embedded subtly across its buildings and monuments. Delivering the 2019 Magna Carta Lecture, Dr Nicola Stacey will look at how we identify narratives of dissent in the random survivals from our past – and how we should look beyond the commemorative and the celebrated to find streams of ideas that shaped our world today.

The 2019 Magna Carta Lecture is part of Royal Holloway’s third Festival of History, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. This free event brings to life the struggle for liberty and democracy over the last 800 years and features an exciting programme of talks, performances, live music, historical re-enactments and children’s activities.

No booking necessary.
