Speaker information

Mr Colin Penman, UCL Library

When the plan for a university for London was outlined by the poet Thomas Campbell in 1825 in a letter to The Times, the establishment unleashed a storm of controversy. We are proud of our radical roots, but how accurate is UCL’s self-image? Learn about our founders, and their relationship with England’s establishment.

Bring your lunch and your curiosity!
