Hayes Robinson Lecture

Each year in March a distinguished international historian is invited to give the Hayes Robinson lecture, in celebration of History at Royal Holloway. The lecture series was re-launched in 1992/3, under a benefaction from the estate of Margaret Hayes Robinson. She was a congenial and inclusive Head of Royal Holloway’s History Department (1899-1911) in the days when higher education for women was still being pioneered; and it is appropriate that, one hundred years later, her legacy is being used to bring people together to enjoy the latest historical research, presented in accessible style.

In 1996, it was decided that the success of the lectures merited publication, and Natalie Zemon Davis launched the pamphlet series with a characteristically zestful study of impostors. As Prof. Penelope Corfield, former Hayes Robinson organiser, has commented: ‘The series is intellectually diverse, lively, and wide-ranging – in a true reflection of the interests of Royal Holloway’s History Department. We are delighted that the entire published series are now available
