Portsmouth High School has for a while been running a series of interesting lectures open to the public about lots of different, timely subjects. The lectures at the moment are all about defence and security, supported by Lockheed Martin UK and RUSI. Tonight’s lecture is by Dr Heather Williams from King’s College London, entitled ‘Fear God and Dread Nought’, discussing the nuclear responsibilities of the UK and USA. The evening start from 6pm with drinks and then the lecture at 6:30pm.
Until January 2015, Heather was a Research Fellow on Nuclear Weapons Policy at Chatham House, and she completed her PhD on US/Russia strategic arms control in the Department of War Studies at King’s College London in December 2014. Prior to moving to London, she worked for the Institute for Defense Analyses and the US Department of Defense in Washington, DC. Heather has a BA (Hons) in International Relations and Russian Studies from Boston University, and an MA in Security Policy Studies from The George Washington University.
The aim of the public lecture series is to bring leading thinkers in their field to the south coast and stimulate discussion outside of the nation’s capital. The lectures are being delivered by a selected group of professionals and scholars, each experts in their respective fields, in order to broaden and expand upon traditional sources available to students and interested parties.
