Former Warden to give Reith Lectures

Former Warden to give Reith Lectures

7 November 2017

BBC Radio 4 has announced today our former Warden Professor Margaret MacMillan will be the BBC Reith Lecturer in the 70th year of the series, delivering five lectures in the Summer 2018 which will explore the relationship between humanity and war.

Across five lectures Margaret will ask why groups, whether nations or religions or gangs, get into wars and why individual men and women fight. She will also explore the ways in which changes in society have affected the nature of war and how in turn wars have brought great change, for better and worse, to the societies that fight them.
