Members might be interested in Gresham College’s free public History lectures which you can watch both at the scheduled time and afterwards (online). You can read more about Gresham College’s free public lectures since 1597 here.
Of general topical interest, as well as the straight history lectures coming up this year, we have a lecture by Professor Chris Whitty on the history of Vaccination, and how it has transformed healthcare, and an old series on epidemics by the historian Professor Richard J Evans, that you may be interested in.
You can register for any lectures using an email address, and will get a reminder 10 minutes before the lecture is due to start.
