The Director's Lectures: a global view

Wednesday 23 & Wednesday 30 January, 1pm
Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE

Professor Anthony Giddens, Director of LSE, will be giving the last two lectures in his series of public lectures on Global Futures at a Time of Transition this January, covering the key dilemmas and possibilities of the contemporary age.

On Wednesday 23 January, Anthony Giddens, previously Professor of Sociology and a Fellow of King's College at Cambridge University as well as the author of 35 books, published in over 30 languages, will begin the series by looking at The Future of the Family.

Professor Giddens will then talk on The Future of Democracy on Wednesday 30 January.

There will also be a video link in the New Theatre, East Building at 1pm for both these lectures.

Professor Anthony Giddens' ideas have profoundly influenced the writing and teaching of sociology and social theory. He has received 13 honorary degrees and is co-founder of the publishing house Polity Press, set up in 1985 and which now publishes some 80 books a year. He became the Director of LSE in 1997 and was the 1999 BBC Reith Lecturer.

No ticket is required, with entry on a first come, first served basis.
