    Distinguished Lecture Series - The Making of the British Landscape

    Public lectures

    7 March 2018

    6 pm - 7.15 pm

    How much do we know about the place we call ‘home’?  The British landscape has been continuously occupied by humans for 12,000 years, from the end of the Ice Age till the twenty-first century. It has been transformed from a European peninsula of glacier and tundra to an island of glittering cities and exquisite countryside.In this geographical journey through time, we discover the ancient relationship between people and place and the deep-rooted tensions between town and countryside. As Britain lurches from an exploitative past towards a more sustainable future, this is the story of our age.

    Public lectures

    22 November 2017

    6 pm - 7.15 pm

    The rolling wave of defeat for conventional politics across the West has left political, media and academic elites stunned.  In some cases voters appear to have responded to political appeals that might damage their own economic interests.But for most of human civilisation the pull of family faith and tribe have always been strong and the advance of big data has revealed that consumers’ choices are driven by considerations of ethnic inheritance, community and environment, as much as by price and quality.
