Warburg professor discusses folk practice, emptying Milwaukee’s bins, and bargain cinema tickets

Thursday 14 September 2017

Professor John Tresch, who joins the Warburg Institute this month as its Mellon Foundation-funded chair in history of art, science and folk practice, features in the Times Higher Education’s HE & Me column. In the wide-ranging discussion Professor Tresch says he would immediately ‘end fees’ if he were universities minister for a day and would like to be remembered for ‘inhabiting contradictions with a little grace.’
