Cambridge Professor visits UCC to talk about democracy

On the Fourth of April we were delighted to welcome back Professor Paul Cartledge from the University of Cambridge. The Classical Lecturer presented a talk on how recent events such as the Brexit referendum and the election of Donald Trump in the USA all have links to the ancient world particularly Greece and Rome. Aided by incisive questioning by our students Paul examined the nature of citizenship now and back then and students shared their views on the issues that grip us on the Geo-Political Stage.

Paul commented that our students were very well informed and motivated.
