History: the Beginning of the End?

November 16, 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

This school debate at the historic Canterbury Cathedral Archives and Library asks some awkward questions as we put teachers, academics and heritage professionals in conversation with young people. Is there a future for the Humanities? Does it still make sense to study the past when the present is changing faster than ever? Are we really what we read? And what messages does the heritage sector send out about what it means to be young today?

Chaired by a school leaver, the discussion will take place between members of the International Centre for Victorian Women Writers, Dreamland, Simon Langton Boys’ Grammar School and Canterbury Cathedral Archives.

In partnership with

Canterbury Cathedral Archives and Library, Simon Langton Boys' Grammar School, Dreamland
