Royal Holloway, University of London, opens Magna Carta centre to study digital age ‘freedoms’
Royal Holloway, University of London, is to open a Magna Carta centre in 2015, which will offer students the option to study digital ‘rights’ and ‘freedoms’.
The University was founded in 1886 by mercantile Victorian philanthropist, Thomas Holloway, and set a historical precedent as being the first University open only to women.
Now, almost 130 years later, Royal Holloway, University of London, will make contributions to the understanding of rights and privileges in a digital age, marking the 800th Anniversary of the sealing of Magna Carta in the nearby fields of Runnymede.
