Drawing examples from both teaching and writing, this lecture reflects my interest in history from and about ‘the margins’. With discussions of role-playing and historical re-enactment, a staged encounter from the 1930’s, and a sketch for a new project on male servants and dependency on nineteenth and twentieth century Britain and America, I examine what I regard as one of social history’s most enduring and significant challenges: rendering precarious the superiorities of the present.
All are welcome to attend and light refreshments will be served following the lecture.
