The Network for the Interface of Classics and Politics is pleased to announce their launch with a public lecture by Philip Norton, Baron Norton on Louth.
Lord Norton is a world-leading authority on British constitutional affairs, and sits in the House of Lords as a Conservative peer. He is also a Professor of Government in the Department of Politics and International Studies at the University of Hull.
Lord Norton will be speaking about the relationship between classical rhetorical theories and contemporary political actors. He will draw upon how ancient thinkers understood political discourse and how modern day politicians owe a debt of gratitude to their scholarship. The lecture will be chaired by the Network Co-Director, Dr David Jeffery.
