Paying a fee is optional and entirely at the discretion of attendees. The income received helps to keep the programme going and ensures that they can continue to engage with as many people around the world as possible.
 
Certain events remain completely free of charge and all events are viewable for 48 hours after the published date and time, which means that attendees who cannot view the live event can catch up at their leisure.

Cardiff, 1981. A group of women with hand-made banners embark on a march of over one hundred miles to Greenham Common military base โ€“ all in the name of nuclear peace. This protest against nuclear missiles led to the establishment of camps that, for nearly two decades, drew women from all over the world, provided a place for female voices to be heard, and paved the way for future female activists.

Discover stories of the Black British population and their lives within Victorian Britain. Even in recent years, there has been a noticeable lack of progression in Black Historyโ€™s presence in British scholarship โ€“ there are multitudes of forgotten geographies of black men and women within Victorian society.

London, 1938. Alma Fielding - an ordinary young woman - begins to experience truly bizarre supernatural events in her suburban home. Nandor Fodor โ€“ a Jewish Hungarian refugee and chief ghost hunter for the International Institute for Psychical Research โ€“ begins to investigate the goings on. In doing so, he discovers a different and darker type of haunting: trauma, alienation, loss, and the foreshadowing of a nationโ€™s worst fears. As the spectre of Fascism lengthens over Europe, and as Fodorโ€™s obsession with the case deepens, Alma becomes ever more disturbed.

The Annual Digital Lecture showcases innovative digital research. This year's speaker is Lauren F. Klein, Emory University. As data are increasingly mobilized in the service of governments and corporations, their unequal conditions of production, asymmetrical methods of application, and unequal effects on both individuals and groups have become increasingly difficult for data scientists, digital humanists, and others who rely on data in their work to ignore. How can scholars, librarians, and archivists intervene?

In November 1501, an extravagant ceremony took place that enthralled the nation and altered the course of English history. In an age when public perceptions of those in power were limited to how government touched everyday life, large and lavish state events were a way in which the common people could judge their leadersโ€™ qualities in a very different light

The treatment of disabled people reveals a great deal about periods throughout history and contemporary wider societies
