SOAS Centenary Timeline: tell us why SOAS matters
In June 2016, SOAS begins a year (actually, 13 months!) of events and activities to mark 100 years of excellence in research and teaching.
The digital Centenary Timeline has been created to highlight the School's history, people and collections. Explore the Centenary Timeline to find out about the people and events that have played an important role in making the School what it is today.
The digital Centenary Timeline complements a 4-metre poster (see image below) on display in the SCR. This was created in 2009 to engage our Honorary Fellows and Graduates with SOAS’ history, its people and collections. It includes some fascinating images and stories based on photographs discovered at the time in the archives.
There is so much more to SOAS’ story and we need your help to build a fuller picture - the SOAS community is invited to suggest seminal research and teaching achievements and events in the School’s history and pay tribute to the people who have pushed the boundaries of academic thought and made an impact on the world.
Your ideas, suggestions, articles and images will also be put forward to the curators of the ‘100 years of SOAS’ exhibition to be considered for inclusion. A range of submissions will also be carried on these pages and the centenary blog.
Please email your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
