"In 1895 the LSE was born with little to suggest that it would one day become one of the most influential and respected universities in the world. But how did the "School" come into being in the first place? What role did key figures like Sidney and Beatrice Webb play? What was their vision? Was it ever realized? And how did this relatively small, somewhat ill-housed, often poorly resourced, and frequently much-criticized institution that many saw as the enemy of the established order, come to play such a key role in British and global politics over the next century?" -- summary from the web page linked above for a lecture given on 24 February 2015 at the LSE Literary Festival 2015 by Professor Michael Cox, Director of LSE IDEAS and Professor of International Relations at LSE, with Sue Donnelly, LSE Archivist, in the Chair. The recording is available as video or audio podcasts via links in the web page or on YouTube.
