Magna Carta and the Making of the Modern World

The year 2015 marks the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta - a document rooted firmly in the politics of medieval England, but which has had political, legal and social repercussions across the globe over the past eight centuries.

In this instalment of the Dr. John Archer Library's 2015-16 Beyond the Book lecture series, co-sponsored by the University of Saskatchewan College of Law, Dr. Carolyn Harris will discuss how this remarkable document from the 13th century remains relevant to - and indeed has helped shape - our world into the 21st century.

Dr. Harris is the author of Magna Carta and Its Gifts to Canada: Democracy, Law, and Human Rights (Dundurn Press, 2015). She teaches history at the University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies and received her PhD in European history from Queen's University in 2012. Her writing has appeared in numerous publications including the Globe and Mail, Ottawa Citizen, Smithsonian Magazine, and the BBC News Magazine, and she is a frequent guest on television and radio. She lives in Toronto.
