Guest history lecture

November 7th, 2014

On Friday 7th November, the history department was pleased to welcome Dr David Sim of the University College London as a guest speaker in the school.

Dr Sim visited Central Foundation Boys’ School in January to promote the benefits of history as a degree and academic endeavour. He was so impressed with the attentiveness of the boys, he returned in November to deliver a lecture covering the life, death and influence of American civil rights campaigner Malcom X.

The lecture led to a variety of opinions in discussion and a range of questions being asked and was attended by history students from Year 11 up to Year 13. As a published historian on US history, Dr Sim was in a position to give complex answers in response, encouraging the students to pursue responses considering all angles when taking writing their own assessments.
