The Present Uses of the Past

The Raphael Samuel History Centre at Queen Mary, University of London presents
‘The Present Uses of the Past’

6.00pm, Tuesday March 5th 2013, Skeel Lecture Theatre, Queen Mary, University of London Mile End Road, London E1 4NS

The past is never really past; it lives on into the present, sometimes in very controversial ways. Competing interpretations of the past are used to explain, to inspire, to exonerate, to condemn. This event looks at some of the uses made of the past in present-day life and politics.
