Professor Sir David Cannadine, Dodge Professor of History, Princeton University, Visiting Professor, University of Oxford and former President of the British Academy (2017-2021): 

“Writing the History of the Ford Foundation.” 

In person event, open to Yale Community.

Professor Sir David Cannadine is author of many books, including: Victorious Century: The United Kingdom, 1800-1906, The Decline and Fall of the British Aristocracy, Class in Britain, Ornamentalism, The Undivided Past, and biographies of G.M Trevelyan, Andrew W. Mellon, King George V and Margaret Thatcher.

Cannadine has helped transform public perception of key historical figures (namely politicians) through his BBC Radio 4 Series Prime Ministers Props and his latest book Churchill, The Statesman as Artist which provides the most important account yet of Winston Churchill’s life in art. He is a Trustee of the Wolfson Foundation, the Gladstone Library and many more. He sits on the Bank of England Banknote Advisory Committee and is a Vice President of the Victorian Society. Cannadine is the editor of the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography. He became the 168th president of the Birmingham & Midland Institute in 2021.

The conversation will be moderated by Arne Westad, ISS director and the Elihu Professor of History and Global Affairs at Yale.
