The 2019 Beatrice Blackwood event:  The Tyranny of Eurocentrism with Peter Frankopan will take place in the Museum of Natural History Lecture Theatre on Friday 3 May at 18:15 (doors open at 17:45).

Professor Frankopan, renowned author of The Silk Roads and The New Silk Roads, will give his expert insights on the rhythms of global changes, encouraging us to move out of our comfort zones and face new futures.

As Professor of Global History, Oxford University, Peter Frankopan travels widely across all continents to advise and listen to governments and leaders, and speak at universities and business schools. 

Waterstones Oxford will have copies of The Silk Roads and The New Silk Roads for sale, and Peter Frankopan will be signing his books.

The biennial Beatrice Blackwood Event commemorates one of the Pitt Rivers Museum’s pioneering anthropologists. Beatrice Blackwood travelled the world to study many peoples and their cultures, taught at the University of Oxford and donated thousands of artefacts and objects to the Museum for visitors and researchers to learn from.
