2017 – John Richmond – 10th Harold Rosen Lecture
A collaboration between DARE, LATE and UCL IOE Press hosted the 10th Harold Rosen Lecture on Monday 20 March 2017 at 17:00 at Lecture Theatre 1, Cruciform Building, UCL, Gower St, London WC1E 6BT [http://www.ucl.ac.uk/maps/cruciform-building]. This free lecture was given by John Richmond, editor of the newly published collection of Harold Rosen’s writings: Harold Rosen: Writings on life, language and learning, 1958–2008. Harold’s son, Michael Rosen, and Betty Rosen, Harold’s widow, introduced the lecture. It was was an inspiring tribute to this towering figure and leader of thought in the world of English teaching, addressing questions of language, politics, culture and narrative, and giving a flavour of the book through discussion of its central themes, and readings from Rosen’s autobiographical writings and poems.
The lecture was well-attended, especially by the English in education community, many of whom had known and worked with Harold Rosen.
The book, containing over 50 pieces of Rosen’s writings, is published by UCL IOE Press.
