Following the success of the 400th Anniversary Lecture Series, we are continuing to hold further Community Lectures at the School.

Professor Harold James will deliver the first of these lectures on the topic ‘Britain and Europe, past and future’.

About the Speaker
Professor Harold James left The Perse in 1974 and went on to study at the University of Cambridge, where he received his Ph.D. in 1982. He was a Fellow of Peterhouse for eight years before moving to Princeton University in 1986. He has written extensively on modern German history, particularly German financial history in the interwar era, European integration, and the economic implications of globalisation. In 2004 he was awarded the Helmut Schmidt Prize for Economic History, and in 2005 the Ludwig Erhard Prize for writing about economics. He is also the official historian of the International Monetary Fund.


This event is free and open to everyone in the community, whether they have a connection to the School or not. Due to capacity restrictions, entry will be by ticket only.
