Margaret MacMillan Reith Lectures (research review)

View this post on Instagram

This year’s #ReithLectures by my favourite #historian Margaret MacMillan are well worth a listen (search online or in your podcast app). The title of the 2018 series of lectures is The Mark of Cain. Erudite, thoughtful, honest and drawing on examples throughout history including #WW1 #GreatWar the five lectures were recorded live in the UK, Canada and Lebanon. ‘War and Humanity’ looked at the impact of war on societies and nations and asked if war is an inevitable part of being human. ‘Fearing and Loving: Making Sense of the Warrior’ asked why people chose to fight and how war affects individuals. ‘Civilians and War.’ ‘Managing the Unmanageable’; efforts to control and regulate war, and peace movements. ‘War’s Fatal Attraction’ on the art and culture of war, and remembrance. #amresearchingformynovel #BBCradio
