You are invited to join the Campaign for Social Science at our Annual SAGE Publishing Lecture, which this year will be delivered by the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Oxford, Professor Louise Richardson FacSS.

A political scientist by training, with research expertise in international security, Professor Richardson was previously the Principal and Vice-Chancellor of the University of St Andrews, and also spent 20 years on the faculty of Harvard University, latterly as Executive Dean of the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study.

Professor Richardson will use her lecture to examine some of the complex challenges facing the Higher Education sector in today’s deeply uncertain, ‘post-truth’ world. The Rt Hon Lord David Willetts FAcSS, Executive Chair of the Resolution Foundation and former Minister for Universities and Science, will deliver a response.
