A celebratory exhibition of a unique institution of higher education which presents the history of the School from a human perspective, and highlights SOAS’s wider impact on world history, scholarship, cultural preservation, politics, social development and the arts.
For one hundred years the School has focused on Africa, Asia and the Middle East, bringing together students and staff from many nations to study and research the languages and subjects of the wider world.
The story of SOAS is a rich one, encompassing intellectual pursuits, locations, resources and most of all people who through teaching, research, learning and administration have made SOAS what it is today.
Ranging from Hollywood stars to ground breaking scholars and Soviet spies the list of people who have passed through the doors of SOAS since 1916 is extensive and each person has had an impact in both large and small ways on the School and beyond. This exhibition highlights their contributions and experiences, representing the diversity and character of the School of Oriental and African Studies over the past one hundred years across the School’s vast regional remit.
OPEN: Tuesday – Saturday 10.30 – 17.00 (Thurs late night opening until 20.00)
CLOSED: Sunday, Monday, and Bank Holidays
