The 2015 Alcuin Lecture was given by Neal Ascherson under the title of "Our infinite Scotland small?" Choosing worlds to join.
The lecture took place on Friday 5th June at 5.00-6.00pm in the Alison Richard Building on the subject of the historical connections between Scotland and Europe, how they can be exploited in the present context, and the importance of re-establishing an active and distinct 'European identity' for Scotland in the next few years. There was a brief question and answer session with Neal following the lecture.
