A Global Economics and History Forum event
Plenty of attention is being paid to the political and constitutional effects of Brexit, but what will its economic impact be on life’s most basic commodities? Debating these questions will be five historians and policy makers with combined expertise covering the period since the 1840s, the “Hungry Forties,” which live in political memory as the UK’s last serious sustained period of food poverty: Professor Jim Tomlinson (Glasgow), Professor Anthony Howe (East Anglia), Dr Sarah Richardson (Warwick), Lindsday Aqui (Queen Mary), Geoff Tansey (Curator, Food Systems Academy; Chair, Fabian Commission on Food and Poverty).
Places are limited and RSVP is essential. Please book your place here.
