September the 11th and after: reflections on the war against terrorism

Publication date: Mar 21, 2006 5:21:59 PM

Professor Sir Michael Howard, Emeritus Professor of Modern History, University of Oxford will deliver a lecture entitled 'September the 11th and after: reflections on the war against terrorism' as part of the Provost's Lecture Series at University College London on Tuesday 29 January 2002 at 6.00pm.

Sir Michael was appointed the first Professor of War Studies at King's College London during the 1950's. He then moved to Oxford and from there was appointed the Robert A. Lovett Chair of Military and Naval History at Yale. Sir Michael has written a number of books, most recently The Invention of Peace, published in 2001.

The Provost's Lecture Series provides a platform for internationally renowned speakers to address a distinguished audience on issues of major interest. The lectures contribute to UCL's mission to understand the past, challenge the present and help shape the future.

Speaking in advance of the Tuesday lecture, the Provost and President of UCL, Professor Sir Chris Llewellyn Smith said:

"The lecture series illuminates contemporary issues of major importance. Through their teaching and research, universities play an important role in expanding our understanding of these issues, defining the terms of debate and shaping their outcome. UCL, now the UK's leading university in terms of research income, is an ideal venue to foster debates involving major figures from around the world. I am delighted that such a renowned figure as Professor Sir Michael Howard will be delivering this lecture."
