RHS - Zoom 1 yr in - RoyalHistSoc
January 19, 2022
Zoom controlling a lot raises the probability things may glitch. Keeping my version of Zoom up to date is essential. I tend to use the attendee link to enter via a second devise so I know it works. But still, there are access issues on occasion and when it’s you having the access issue as an attendee their is nothing more frustrating.
Is it me? Is it the link? Is it Zoom?
As a remote controller its impossible for me to know.
It’s very frustrating because I pride myself on a well executed online events.
Tonight the emailed link worked for some and not for others. Paste the link into the address bar of a browser and it works.
I suspect it’s a line break issue.
Anyone had this problem recently?
Tonight’s lecture was a Zoom international. Mark Mazower delivered his paper to an audience that hit 100 from New York. These lectures have been Zoom controlled from my desk for a year. The digital tide is turning. Next month is scheduled to be online. Going forward it’s only a matter of time before the coin is flipped and the lectures return to the lecture hall with a new digital extension.
As the attendees arrive
How should we think today about the history of diplomacy? How has diplomatic history changed over the last one hundred years?
In his lecture, Mark Mazower reflects on recent experience writing about the history of the Greek war of independence, and explored the ways in which the events of 1821 have been connected to the emergence of an international order in Europe by scholars and historians from the First World War until today.
The recording will be trimmed and uploaded to YouTube.

Mark in full swing. Engaging lecture with no slide deck. Huge kudos.
