25 Jonathan Sumption – In conversation – 5.00pm Saturday 17 June – Vinson Building
Historian and former Supreme Court judge Lord Jonathan Sumption is widely regarded as one of the finest legal minds in the country. A Reith Lecturer (2019), he is outspoken on a wide range of subjects and on civil liberty especially, with his much discussed intervention during the Covid pandemic.
Four instalments of his critically acclaimed history of the Hundred Years’ War are published, with volume III, Divided Houses, winning the Wolfson History Prize. The fifth and final volume, Triumph and Illusion, will follow in late 2023. Jonathan is in discussion with Matt Stadlen.
