Hayes Robinson Lecture
Professor Sir Keith Thomas (University of Oxford)
Heritage or History? Conflicting Views of the Past
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.
