Magna Carta 800: an anniversary videoconference

Magna Carta Videoconference between New York University London and New York University Washington D.C.

This year we celebrate the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta (the ‘Great Charter’), the historic document sealed by King John of England in an agreement with his rebellious barons which redefined the civil rights of English citizens in relation to the power of the monarchy.

Forged from the conditions of intense social conflict in the medieval world, the document has come down to us in modern times - with their own various civic problems - as one of the cornerstones of modern democratic understanding in the UK and also in the United States.

NYU London joins with Faculty and students at NYU Washington, for an informal academic videoconference on the significance of Magna Carta on both sides of the Atlantic. Contributors will include NYUL Director Gary Slapper, Professor David Carpenter, (King’s, London, editor of the new Penguin Classics edition of Magna Carta), together with Profs. Marvin Astrada (NYU Washington) and Scott Kelly (NYUL). Moderator: Phillip Drummond (NYUL).
