War and Civilization

Jon Stallworthy sends me details of a forthcoming lecture series at Wolfson College, Oxford, titled 'War and Civilization'. The line-up is extremely impressive:

29 April Niall Ferguson: War and Finance
6 May Geoffrey Hill: War and Poetry
13 May Marina Warner: War and Pity
20 May Ian Buruma: War and Liberation.

The lectures start at 6pm in the Hall of Wolfson College, Oxford. All are welcome.


  1. ... Wonder if Hill would allow someone to tape and post his lecture on-line. Sounds tailormade for a certain essential website (which shall be nameless). Whaddaya think, Tim?

  2. Hi!
    War and poetry...

    we are survivors
