Details Philip Kendrick is an Oxford-trained classical archaeologist who has worked in many parts of the Mediterranean world as a specialist in Hellenistic and Roman pottery. Much of his work has concerned Libya, which he visited or worked in from 1971 until 2012. In recent years he has led cultural tours to a number of different countries; in this connection he has written two archaeological guides to Libya (Tripolitania, Cyrenaica). More recently he has translated and revised a French guidebook to the classical antiquities of Algeria, a country which is not far away but which is rarely visited by tourists.

Thu 27 May 2021 10.00 am     Open meeting     Lis Howell: There are fewer than you think: why expert women are under-represented on the news

Details Survey research by City University's Department of Journalism over the last ten years has shown that male experts interviewed on the news outnumber women by nearly three to one. And it used to be much worse! Before this research and the campaign which followed it there were an astonishing six times as many men as women on the news. Why are authoritative women so under-represented? Lis Howell has researched this controversial topic for over a decade and has some uncomfortable as well as informative answers. Emeritus Professor Lis Howell retired from City University in 2018 but still directs the Expert Women Project which counts and reports the number of women authority figures on six major news programmes. She is an award winning journalist and broadcasting executive who has worked for all the major news channels, winning a Royal Television Society award with ITN for coverage of the Lockerbie disaster. She was Managing Editor of Sky News and the first female Head of News at ITV.

Thu 10 Jun 2021 10.00 am     Open meeting     David Edgerton: The Rise and Fall of the British Nation: a Twentieth Century History

Details David will present a new view of twentieth-century British history, one which makes better sense of the past, and to some extent the present, than conventional views. Most British histories are concerned with the rise and fall of the welfare state, and also the decline (and occasionally later supposed rise) of the economy. More recently some historians have wanted to see Empire as the key theme in British history. Edgerton rejects all these approaches as partial and often misleading. In their place he puts a multi-faceted story of a nation which emerges out of a broader British Empire only in 1945, of a place which was truly exceptional in its internationalism and industrialisation in 1900 (though not in its imperialism) but was no longer so after the 1950s, of a place which saw radical discontinuities rather than continuities. This leads to fresh understandings of the nature of the welfare state, of the economy, of the nature of Thatcherism, and indeed of possible historical explanations of Brexit. David Edgerton teaches in the History Department at King's College London, where he is Hans Rausing Professor of the History of Science and Technology and Professor of Modern British History. He was the founding director of the Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine now at King's College London. He chairs King's Contemporary British History, and is a co-director of the Sir Michael Howard Centre for the History of War. He was educated at St. John's College Oxford and Imperial College London, and has taught at the University of Manchester and Imperial College London. Among his books are England and the Aeroplane (1991, 2013), Warfare State (2005), The Shock of the Old (2006, 2019), and most recently The Rise and Fall of the British Nation: A Twentieth-Century History (Penguin, 2019). He writes regularly for the Guardian and the New Statesman.
