Event description

Description

Registration is now open. Please note, you will need to register for each lecture individually.

The PMC’s third Public Lecture Course will explore the entangled histories of Britain and South Asia through art and visual culture. It will be convened by Hammad Nasar and Sarah Victoria Turner (Deputy Director, PMC), the co-leaders of the PMC’s new London, Asia project, with lectures by a wide range of expert invited speakers.

This year's course will run for five lectures and will continue to be held weekly on Thursday evenings starting with an informal reception at 18.30. Lectures will then begin at 19.00 followed by a discussion session until 20.30. No prior art historical knowledge is necessary. Each lecture will be accompanied by a discussion led by the course convenors.

We recommend that people enroll for the whole course to gain the full understanding of the topic. Participants will need to register for each lecture individually.
