Podcast: The Uses and Abuses of History

Professor Margaret MacMillan teaches International History at the University of Oxford, where she is also warden of St Antony's College.

In this lecture, she discusses how history casts a shadow over the present in more ways than we realise, and how history can be harnessed to help understand contemporary global conflicts.

Margaret MacMillan delivered this 54 minute lecture at the Lowy Institute in Sydney. Her visit to Australia was organised by the Association for Canadian Studies in Australia and New Zealand, and the Canadian High Commission.
