LSE Public Lecture

IDEAS-CWSC Book Launch

Speaker: Professor Matthew Connelly
Chair: Professor Paul Kennedy

"With its transnational scope and exhaustive research into archives such as Planned Parenthood and the newly opened Vatican secret archives, historian Matthew Connelly’s withering critique exposes the cost inflicted by a humanitarian movement gone awry and urges renewed commitment to the reproductive rights of all people. It holds vital lessons for our missionary zeal to save the world—whether from poverty, from HIV/AIDS or from climate change."

Matthew Connelly is associate Professor of History at Columbia University. He has just become one of the History News Network’s top young historians.

This event is free and open to all. Entry is on a first come, first served basis.
