Fans of novelist Leo Tolstoy will be taking a keen interest in the subject matter of this year’s A.B. Emden Lecture at St Edmund Hall on Friday.
Professor Dominic Lieven, Senior Research Fellow at Trinity College, Cambridge, will be delivering a lively talk entitled Russia’s defeat of Napoleon: How Tolstoy got it wrong.
The Emden Lecture, which is open to the public, is given annually as a result of a benefaction in memory of the former Hall Principal, and takes the form of a history lecture accessible to a non-specialist audience.
The lecture, held in the Doctorow Hall, starts at 5pm and will last for 45 minutes. It will be followed by a question and answer session.
All are welcome to what will be an absorbing talk. Admission is free.
