extra tickets released - REWRITING HISTORY

Tuesday 17 October: 6:00pm - 7:30pm

St John's College Fisher Building, St John’s Street, CB2 1TP

Is history always written by the victors? Panelists Ruth Dudley Edwards, Kehinde Andrews, Maximilian Sternberg and Yesim Yaprak Yildiz will discuss how history is used to advance nationalist and colonialist ideas and how different sides can fervently believe different versions of the same events. Their contributions will cover decolonisation, Irish history, torturers’ confessions in Turkey and how architectural heritage is used and abused in Jerusalem.
