A series of short lectures which take place in Oxford’s pubs on the first Thursday of every month. Each talk is open to the public and is given by a DPhil student in History and will cover various topics related to the history of the British Empire.
For this 2nd Lecture, Founding Co-Director of Uncomfortable Oxford, Olivia Durand, will be talking about ‘The Indian Ocean’ as part of the ‘The Age of Exploration’ module.
We have a fantastic group of students scheduled for the series, which aims to invite non-specialist audiences to learn more about a topic which is often overlooked. The series is organised by Uncomfortable Oxford, a student-lead social enterprise aiming at raising awareness about the ‘uncomfortable’ legacies of inequality and imperialism in the city as well as the politics of memory in its built environment.
We hope that you are eager to join us in conversation, and learn more about the British Empire at the PUBlic Lecture Series.
