2021 Sue Lloyd-Roberts Memorial Lecture with guest speaker Isabel Hilton OBE

17:30 to 19:00

Lecture on 'The China Challenge': 5.30pm
Fundraising Dinner: 7.30pm

This lecture series was established in honour of alumna, Sue Lloyd-Roberts, the award-winning broadcast journalist whose uncompromising and courageous documentaries highlighted humanitarian issues across the world. Our speaker this year, London-based international journalist and broadcaster, Isabel Hilton, is one of the world’s most respected China analysts. She studied at the Beijing Foreign Language and Culture University and at Fudan University in Shanghai before taking up a career in written and broadcast journalism. Isabel is the founder and editor of chinadialogue.net, a non-profit, fully bilingual online publication based in London, Beijing, and Delhi that focuses on the environment and climate change.

A drinks reception and a fundraising dinner will follow the lecture. Proceeds from the dinner will go to the Sue Lloyd-Roberts Fund to support St Hilda's students who wish to explore careers in the media.

The lecture and reception are free, but please register in order to attend. The lecture will also be livestreamed and recorded for those who wish to attend virtually at any time; it will be available here from 5.30pm on 27 November.

Dinner booking deadline: 22 November. Please note that refunds for cancelled tickets cannot be issued after this date.
