Christopher Smith's valedictory lecture now available to watch online

Last week BSR Director Professor Christopher Smith gave his valedictory lecture in London, entitled ‘From Archaic Italy to contemporary art: adventures with the British School at Rome’. You can now watch the video recording of the lecture on our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pogVrKsRXjo&t=10s

In this lecture, Christopher gives a very personal reflection upon the BSR’s achievements and its future role in inspiring creative research.

And in the latest edition of the British Academy Review, Christopher reflects on how the movement of people and ideas across the centuries has been studied through the work of the BSR. His article is published here: http://www.britac.ac.uk/moving-ideas-british-school-rome-2009-2017
