Helen will deliver her lecture in May 2018. She said: ‘I’m extremely honoured to have been chosen by the Electors and to be following in the footsteps of some truly great scholars whose lectures have been groundbreaking and inspirational.’ The Department sends its warmest congratulations to Helen on this prestigious appointment.
