Prospect is proud to be partnering the Battle for the Past debates on Sunday 31st October at this year’s Battle of Ideas festival. There will be five different debates during the day featuring Prospect contributors, including editor David Goodhart, as well as top public intellectuals, including Roger Scruton and Bettany Hughes. These discussions - taking in a wide range of topics, from the question of who owns the Elgin Marbles to the challenges of memorialising the Holocaust - will look at how history can, and can’t, be made relevant to contemporary life.
