Annual Edmund Burke Lecture: Sometimes it Matters Who is in Power
Professor Margaret MacMillan
How do we weigh the great forces against the individuals in history? Political, economic and social structures, resources, demography, ideas, we know these shape the past. Yet can we dismiss the impact of powerful leaders and thinkers such as Vladimir Lenin, Adolf Hitler, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Karl Marx or Mohammed? This lecture argues that there are crucial junctures where an individual can push history in one direction or another.
The Trinity Long Room Hub is delighted to announce that Professor Margaret MacMillan will deliver the Annual Edmund Burke Lecture for 2017. This lecture series is supported by a generous endowment in honour of Padraic Fallon by his family.
