Where do we come from, where are we going?
Origins preoccupy us today. From politics through television period dramas to family histories, we want to know about our collective pasts, the ones that lie beyond our individual memories and that involve lives other than our own.
Come and hear BBC genealogist Nick Barratt talk about the power of personal heritage to transform education and to generate travel and tourism. In this event, you can also hear UCL’s Jane Gilbert and Katherine Ibbett discussing their work on origins. Jane will discuss some of the ways in which medieval Europeans thought about individual and collective pasts and futures in terms of places, migrations and identities. Katherine will look at why sixteenth century French people were obsessed with the sources of rivers, and what that obsession meant for everything from family trees to landscape gardening.
After the talks, there will be an opportunity to chat informally to our speakers over a glass of wine.
