Prince of Jordan visits St Andrews
Principal Professor Sally Mapstone welcomes HRH Prince El Hassan bin Talal of Jordan and Princess Sarvath al-Hassan to the University of St Andrews (Tuesday 27 November).
HRH Prince El Hassan bin Talal gave a lecture to staff and students at the University, discussing the refugee crisis affecting people and countries across the Middle East, the broader challenges of global warming, and the need to look at humanity as an ensemble rather than peoples separated by nationalism.
The Prince also visited the University’s School of Classics where he learned of the Through a Glass Darkly project, a major effort to digitise collections, led by Professor Rebecca Sweetman.
