Description

London: Global and Local

Dr. Warren Magnusson

London is the very archetype of a global city, but it is also a city of neighbourhoods largely unknown to most visitors. In this lecture, Warren Magnusson will discuss the relation between localization and globalization in the development of the city. Using Islington, Greenwich, and the Isle of Dogs as his examples, he will explore the way recent changes have refigured the past as an aspect of present-day life.

UVic Café Historique 2017-18 Season

The Traveller's Guide to History: Great Cities

Our 2017-18 season is based on a popular UVic course called The Backpacker’s Guide to European History. Of course, you don’t need to strap a backpack on to enjoy travel – but it helps to know a little bit about the history of the places you’re going!

We're thrilled that Hermann's is alive and well and welcoming us back for another season. As in previous years, doors open at 5pm and talks begin at 6:30. Donations of $2 per person are gratefully accepted at the event - bring your toonie!
