Meet the Historian: Sally Alexander, 6-8pm 22 Feb 2012, Room 104, South Block, Senate House, London WC1E 7HU
History Lab's 'Meet the Historian’ events are an opportunity to hear at first hand from noted historians how and why they became historians in the first place, their thoughts on research and the discipline generally, and about their latest work. There will be the chance to ask questions and enter into discussion, and to join the speaker for drinks after the talk.
Sally Alexander is Professor of Modern History at Goldsmiths, University of London. She has been an editor of History Workshop Journal since its foundation in 1976 and her research interests lie in the history of social movements, feminism in particular, London history, the history of psychoanalysis, oral history and subjectivity. Co-convenor of the Modern British History seminar and Psychoanalysis and History at the IHR, she is currently editing, with Professor Barbara Taylor, a volume on Psychoanalysis and History for Palgrave, 2012.
History Lab is a national network of postgraduates in history or a related discipline. Events are open to those doing an MA or a PhD and non-members are welcome. For more information, see www.history.ac.uk/historylab
