The second talk in the Cambridge Humanities Review series ‘Lectures in the Humanities’ will be delivered by the recently appointed Vere Harmsworth Professor of Imperial and Naval History Alison Bashford. Her talk will trace the idea of a world population problem from the 1920s in terms of migration, colonial expansion, globalization and world food plans. Professor Bashford’s research connects the history of modern science and medicine, imperial history and environmental history. Representatives of Heffers Bookshop will be in attendance to sell copies of her most recent book Global Population. £5 year annual subscriptions to the CHR magazine will be available to purchase, the next Issue will be published at the end of November.
