    Professor Peter Hennessy FBA, Baron Hennessy of Nympsfield, Attlee Professor of Contemporary British History The Department of History is delighted to present the 2014 Stenton Lecture, this year to be given by author, historian and Reading Honorary Graduate Peter Hennessy. Writing for over four decades, Peter is a proud product of the post-war welfare state. His writings convey a profound self-awareness of how his perspective has been shaped by the 1950s Britain in which he grew up, and his journalism has provided insights into the working lives of the men and women who ran the British state in the 1970s. In his lecture, Peter will reflect upon his career and consider the challenges and opportunities modern historians face when writing the history of their own times. <a href="http://www.reading.ac.uk/history/research/2014_Stenton_Lecture_Conference.aspx">Book your tickets online >>></a>
