Edward Said Memorial Lecture – Anti-blackness, settler-colonialism and the question of Palestine

5.30pm - 7pm (doors open 5.00pm) | Saturday 14 July

This talk explores how Palestinians now have the potential to pave alternative futures for themselves.


Bettison and James Oration: 25zero

1pm - 1.50pm | Sunday 15 July

Put simply: 25 mountains. Zero latitude. 25 years. Zero ice. 25 zero. Tim Jarvis was the recipient of the Bettison and James award in 2017.
