Unfortunately we have had to postpone this lecture, due to illness, so we will be contacting people who have already booked tickets. We hope to reschedule for the Autumn, and will announce the new date as soon as it is confirmed.
The next lecture in our series promises to be a fascinating one as Dr Mark Glancy, Professor of American and British film history at the Queen Mary University of London, examines the way that history is portrayed in the cinema. Subtitled “The use of the past as entertainment”, the lecture will question the accuracy of events as presented on screen. Dr Glancy’s book Hollywood and the Americanization of Britain, from the 1920s to the present forms the basis of his current research which centres on the reception of American films in Britain.
