2009

2009 was an exciting year with publication of Empires Apart in the UK and lots of bookshop events and speaking engagements. As well as presentations in Oxford, Cambridge and Exeter there were numerous talks to school sixth forms.

 

On 8th December a video of a talk to Nonsuch High School for Girls was included in the school blog www.nonsuchhp.blogspot.com

 

Among the responses to talks were:

 

Royal Grammar School, Guildford “An engaging and accessible approach to a subject outside the regular academic experience of the students. It is relatively rare to hear a talk so well pitched to the ability of the students here” Philip Nathan, Head of General Studies

 

Exeter University “You drew a big crowd and the students were genuinely engaged – we all hope for just one experience like that during our academic careers!” Professor Susan Banducci, Politics Department Exeter University
