LSE’s 7th Literary Festival will explore the foundations of knowledge, society, identity and literature, as well as those of LSE itself in our 120th year. We are reflecting on some of the important anniversaries taking place this year, whilst also celebrating an idea at the heart of LSE, encapsulated in our motto, "to understand the causes of things".
