This talk is open to the public and may be podcast.

Power is at once the most ubiquitous and the most elusive theme of historical writing. Questions of power lie at the centre of most historical narratives, yet the majority of historians have very little to say about what it actually is. This talk makes no attempt to define power, but rather explores some of the ways that thoughts about power have shaped our thinking about the past.
