The Bentham Project is launching an exciting new public engagement initiative – Bentham in the Community – to bring together academic and amateur historians and raise awareness of the life and work of Jeremy Bentham (1748-1832).
Funded by a Beacon Bursary from UCL Public Engagement, the project will consist of three events aimed at situating UCL more firmly within the local community. The first two events will be evening information sessions, one held at UCL and the other in Spitalfields near where Bentham was born, and will feature talks by Bentham Project staff and amateur historians. The third event will be a Bentham walk around parts of London. These events will take place in May during the Historical Association’s Local History Month.
Tickets and more information will be available soon!
