The seminar has an interesting of its own. Rhys Williams was in London earlier in the year and was due to speak on the subject at the Institute of Historical Research on Monday 16th March.

The LSHG took the decision to cancel the seminar, ahead of the national lockdown, because of concerns about the spread of COVID-19 in the Capital.

Our autumn term seminars are on-line via Zoom and we fully support the position of the University and College Union (UCU) that face to face gatherings in an academic environment are not appropriate currently.

Rhys Williams will be joining us (technology allowing)from Australia for the seminar something undreamt of back in March.
