UCL - Institute of the Americas (UCL-IA) is inaugurating an annual lecture to mark Eleanor Roosevelt's contribution to various aspects of American politics and history, notably liberalism, internationalism, the New Deal, the United Nations, civil rights, women's rights, and the Democratic Party. Each year we will host a distinguished scholar to speak on one of these subjects. Eleanor Roosevelt's own contribution may feature but this will not always be the case - the remit is to explore topics that engaged her.

The inaugural Eleanor Roosevelt Lecture will be delivered by Prof Susan-Mary Grant (Newcastle), who will speak on Media-Made Moms: Politics, Publishing, and the Power of the Presidency in American Women's History.

The lecture will be followed by a wine reception at the Haldane Room in the same Wilkins Building. Attendance is free of charge, but registration is required.
