MB Lee Distinguished Lecture: History's People - Lecture by Professor Margaret MacMillan

Message from School of Humanities Event Poster The MB Lee Distinguished Lectures in the Humanities History’s People Speaker: Professor Margaret MacMillan, St Antony's College, Oxford University Date: September 29 2016 Time: 6:00pm Venue: Large Moot Court, 2/F Cheng Yu Tung Tower , Centennial Campus, HKU Is history made by great forces such as economics, politics or ideas or is it made by people? Perhaps the truth lies somewhere in between. Individuals are shaped by the times in which they live but sometimes they can push changes in one direction or another. This lecture looks at those leaders, explorers, or entrepreneurs who have made a difference in the past, for better or worse, but it also looks at those who make history possible by writing down their experiences and observations.
