Nelson Mandela: A Very Short Introduction
Thursday 30 March 2017
Oxford University Press is proud to return to the FT Weekend Oxford Literary Festival with another series of soap box talks from the very short introductions series. These free, 15-minute talks feature expert authors from the series and take place twice a day in the Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.
Professor in world literature in English Elleke Boehmer explores the reasons why Nelson Mandela’s story is so important to us in the world at large today, and what his achievements signify.
