T E Lawrence Society Symposium 2018
Friday 21st Sep - Sunday 23rd Sep
Join us for the
15th Symposium of the
T. E. Lawrence Society
St John’s College, Oxford
Friday 21 to Sunday 23 September 2018
Commemorating the end of the Arab Revolt
with the taking of Damascus in 1918
The Symposium is the most important event organised by the
T. E. Lawrence Society.
Held every two years, the Symposium offers a chance to meet fellow enthusiasts from around the world and to enjoy lectures covering
diverse aspects of Lawrence’s life, in the historic surroundings of Oxford, with all its many associations with Lawrence.
For the weekend of the Symposium, delegates can enjoy the
privilege of living and dining in one of Oxford’s celebrated historic colleges.
Past Symposia have featured talks by internationally
regarded writers and academics, as well as members of the Society sharing their own knowledge and researches.
2018 sees us linking up with Magdalen College, who will present a unique exhibition of the expanding archives on Lawrence.
We also have a whole afternoon devoted to Gertrude Bell and her friendship with Lawrence, together with her influence on the Middle East. The directors of the film Letters from Baghdad will present and talk about the making of this fascinating documentary. The Gertrude Bell archive director from Newcastle University will also talk about the massive collection held there.
Our 2016 Symposium at St John’s College coincided with the centenary of the outbreak of the Arab Revolt, and a special programme of lectures was organised to mark the occasion. Our 2018 Symposium will see us commemorating of the taking of Damascus in 1918.
