St. Margaret’s House is pleased to present a new partnership with the IF Project for a series of events across Summer and Autumn 2018. The IF Project run free, university-level arts and humanities short courses in London. They do this with the help of 50 volunteer lecturers, drawing material from high-quality online content and teaming up with leading academics from various universities.

Opening up the IF Project series, Professor Danny Dorling will give a lecture entitled 'Inequality: the big picture'. This is the first of three Summer lectures on Inequality from The IF Project. Tickets are free. All are welcome.

Danny Dorling is the Halford Mackinder Professor of Geography at the University of Oxford. As well as Injustice: Why social injustice still persists, his recent books include The Inequality Effect (2017) and, with colleagues, The Human atlas of Europe (2016). As an early proponent of rapidly reducing economic inequalities, he is now much sought-after as one of the foremost contributors to contemporary debates surrounding income inequality. He will publish Peak Inequality: Britain's Ticking Timebomb (Policy Press) this July.

Want more? The IF Project's three Summer lectures are being held in preparation for a free 8-week course taking place across September and October 2018, entitled ‘Inequality: The Brief History’. The course will explore inequality with historians, writers, artists and philosophers. You can apply to take the course here.
