Audience Teens

Brought to you by The University of Manchester’s History Department and Creative Manchester, in partnership with Factory International, an event for Year 12 students… with David Olusoga, Professor of Public History at The University of Manchester and BAFTA award winning presenter of acclaimed BBC TV programmes Civilisations, Black and British and Britain’s Forgotten Slave Owners.

Join David in what promises to be an absorbing lecture on why studying history as a discipline is important today – and its relevance in our everyday lives. This is a brilliant opportunity to find out more about studying history at university level.

You’ll also hear University of Manchester staff in the History Department bring history to life and learn just some of the diverse and fascinating histories and viewpoints being researched at Manchester. Plus, you’ll have the opportunity to visually express your thoughts and opinions on the day’s discussions in a DIY zine-making workshop with Factory International staff.

Please note, this event will also be live streamed and recorded. You will need to book in order to watch the live stream.
