Magna Carta and the Struggle for Justice: The Common People and Resistance to Empire

Lecture by Dr Wilf Wilde, Fellow St Johns College Durham University

In celebration of the 800th Anniversary of the Magna Carta, and a month after the 2015 UK election, this talk looks at the parallels between the Magna Carta’s issues and those of our own global politics and economics. The City of London and the Church gained a charter for their liberties in 2015 on the back of the feudal barons fighting over their participation in the politics of 1215.

What can we learn in our struggles for justice and against Empire in a world dominated by war and injustice? For we also live in a world run by an oligarchic elite, who often do not speak the same language, understand the issues or care much about the people they rule?

Dr Wilf Wilde is Fellow at St Johns College, Durham University. This free lecture is open to all. Fairtrade refreshments and networking to follow.
