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.

About

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.
