The 2020-2021 Gandhara Connections Lecture: Rory Stewart (title to be confirmed)
Save the date! We're delighted to announce that this year's Gandhara Connections Lecture will be given online by Rory Stewart at 6.00pm BST on 2nd June 2021.
For our fourth annual Gandhara Connections lecture we go online, with the former diplomat, politician, writer, walker, and polymath, Rory Stewart OBE. Among his many interests, the history and heritage of the 'Gandharan' regions, in Afghanistan and Pakistan, have been an abiding concern, notably in his writing (his bestselling The Places in Between) and his work through the Turquoise Mountain Foundation.
More details of this lecture will be announced soon, but it is possible to register now through Crowdcast on:
