Simon Schama to deliver third Roy Porter Lecture
18 March 2005
Professor Simon Schama will deliver the third annual Roy Porter Lecture, organised by UCL's Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine, on 5 May 2005.
The lecture series is a tribute to the late Professor Porter. A prolific author and historian, he produced more than 200 books on a plethora of subjects before his death in 2002, including histories of geology, madness and psychiatry, and a social history of London. His major publication, The Enlightenment, received international acclaim.
The lecture is free, but by ticket only for this popular event. Attendees must register by 30 March 2005.
