Paul Webley Commemoration and Celebration

Around 250 people gathered in the Beveridge Hall on 2 November 2016 to remember Paul and to celebrate his life. Friends, colleagues, former students and Paul’s close family listened to a series of eminent speakers reflecting on his great achievements as a scholar and educational leader – and his ability to inspire love and loyalty in those around him. The event included filmed interviews and a brief musical interlude – the Kora music that Paul loved,  played by the renowned Kora  Griot, Kadialy Kouyate who is a Senior Teaching Fellow at SOAS. The event was filmed and can be seen here…
