The Isaiah Berlin Lecture 2023

dr nathaniel adam tobias coleman

The Isaiah Berlin Lecture was launched in 1990 to celebrate the 80th birthday of the College's Founding President, Sir Isaiah Berlin, made possible thanks to an endowment gift from the Rothschild Foundation. The lecture traditionally takes place each Trinity term and is in Berlin’s own field of study, the history of ideas. 

The next Berlin Lecture will take place at 6pm on Thursday 25 May (Thursday in Week 5) in the Leonard Wolfson Auditorium and online with Dr Nathaniel Adam Tobias Coleman, who will be delivering the second part of their new history of Section 28 in a lecture entitled ‘Black Brummie Schoolboy'. The first part will be delivered at Pembroke College on Thursday 18 May ("Stonewalling Our Story" - link to follow), and a related workshop will take place on Friday 19 May ("Contract to Closet" - location TBC).
