On Tues 3 May at 18:00, the Wolfson Humanities Society will be hosting a talk: ‘Writing about democracy in the age of Modi and Trump’  given by Professor Eugenio Biagni, Professor of Modern and Contemporary History, Faculty of History, University of Cambridge.

After the hubris of the 1990s and the despondency of the Donald Trump years, what is it like to reflect on the rise and crisis of democracy? And how can historians go about dissecting the cultural context within which it originated, flourished, withered, and revived?

The talk will take place in the Gatsby Room (Chancellor's Centre) at Wolfson College and also on Zoom. For the in-person audience, drinks and snacks will be available from 17.45. If you would like to attend the Zoom webinar, please register your email for the link.
