History Research Seminars Autumn 2018

Every year, the History team at Portsmouth organise a series of research seminars that take place across the autumn, winter and spring terms. Historians are invited from a range of institutions, both in Britain and abroad, to talk about their latest research projects. The subjects presented cover a broad historical timespan and offer insight into a diverse range of topics. This autumn there will be talks on monstrosity in the nineteenth century, ‘No Platforming’ in universities, and women’s workplace protests in the late-twentieth century. All are welcome to attend.
