This event is part of the British Academy's season on Utopia or Dystopia - Imagining Futures

Ian Morris offers some historical perspective to contemporary issues by reviewing the history of the British Isles, and the 8,000 years since rising sea levels physically separated the region from the European continent. He conveys how the challenges facing Britain in the 2010s are neither new nor uniquely British, and how looking at these challenges over the long term reveals some surprising patterns that offer hints about the fate of the Western world in the 21st century.

Speaker:
Professor Ian Morris FBA, Jean and Rebecca Willard Professor of Classics, Stanford University

Organised in collaboration with the British Museum and City Lit.
