Professor Suzannah Lipscomb, Roehampton

Suzannah Lipscomb is a historian, author, broadcaster, and award-winning academic. She is Professor of History at the University of Roehampton

On becoming a patron of Being Human festival, Suzannah said: “The Being Human festival offers a powerful antidote to the blights of our age: half-truths, dis-information, narcissism, and mutual intolerance. It creates open and frank opportunities to share ideas, to extend empathy and understanding, and to learn from human experience; it provides urgently-needed spaces for critical engagement and self-reflection; and it allows moments of healing through creativity. It is a force for good.”
