Join us on Wednesday 17 May for a conversation with Sir Christopher Clark on his new book, Revolutionary Spring: Fighting for a New World 1848-1849, a dazzling account of 1848, the year when seemingly out of a clear blue sky virtually every European state was overwhelmed by revolution. It marked a turning point that shaped much of modern European history, a year with which Clark draws explicit parallels with unrest in Europe today.

Christopher Clark is one of the most revered historians of 19th century continental Europe working today, and author of the international bestseller Sleepwalkers, published 2012. He is Regius Professor of History at the University of Cambridge and his books include The Politics of Conversion, Kaiser Wilhelm II, Iron Kingdom, Time and Power and Prisoners of Time. He was knighted in 2015.

Further details on the event, including the exact time and location, will be announced in due course.
