POSTPONED: Annual History Lecture 2020: The Making of the Atlantic World
May 20 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE IN RESPONSE TO THE CORDIV-19 CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK.
On 16th March 2020 the Prime Minister Boris Johnston made a statement in regards to the COVID-19 and social distancing. The Government have increased the UK’s response by encouraging stricter measures surrounding social distancing.
These measures include advising against non-essential social contact; including avoiding pubs, clubs, restaurants and theatres as well as non-essential travel for a prolonged period.
Based on this statement we have taken the difficult decision to suspend all events until after the Summer.
We appreciate this will be of immense disappointment to our patrons but our priority must be the health and safety of our customers, community and colleagues.
We will be doing our best to contact all customers with existing bookings and our hope is to postpone rather than cancel our events.
Once again we apologise for any disappointment or inconvenience caused and appreciate your patience in what is a difficult and unprecedented situation.
We look forward to welcoming you back as soon as possible.
Professor Nicholas Canny proposes to set the seventeenth century English Puritan migration to Massachusetts in a wider context than is usually taken into account. Nicholas will argue that it was the perceived success of the Iberians both in the Americas, and in the wider world; that spurred the Dutch, the French and the English to emulate what the Spanish and Portuguese had achieved or attempted.
