This lecture explores the destruction of libraries, archives and other knowledge, from Babylonian times until now, and its implications for society today.

What are the motivations for destroying knowledge, and how have libraries and archives responded to these threats? What must we do now that knowledge is digital, and controlled by a small number of very powerful companies?

We are live-streaming all our lectures in 2021-22, or you can attend in person.
