Brad Beaven’s inaugural lecture is now live!

Professor Brad Beaven’s inaugural lecture ‘Exploring Sailortown: civic culture, slums and scandal in 19th century British ports’ is now available to watch. This was a public lecture delivered to mark Brad’s promotion to professorship. The event, held on 29th March 2017, was attended by well over 300 people, all eager to hear about these cosmopolitan places, where sailors mingled and fraternized with the towns’ inhabitants!
