Dominic Sandbrook is one of Britain’s most exciting and high-profile modern historians. Having previously taught at the universities of Oxford and Sheffield, he has in the past few years dedicated himself to a freelance career writing books and articles. On top of writing articles for the Sunday Times, The Observer, New Statesman and the Daily Telegraph, among others, he has written a series of books on modern British political and social history, including ‘Never Had It So Good’ (1956-63), ‘White Heat’ (1964-70) and his latest, ‘State of Emergency’ (1970-74).

He will be discussing his latest research into Britain in the 1970s, a frequent reference point for politicians and a period which looms large in Britain’s collective memory.

The speech will be followed by a question and answer session.
