Local History Seminar - 9 October

Humanities A03
Saturday 9th October 2021 (10:00-12:00)

Welcome to Local History Seminars

This is a long-running public seminar series run by the Department of History, convened by Dr Richard Gaunt (Associate Professor in British Political and Electoral History). All students, academic staff, and the general public are welcome. The seminars offer an opportunity for public discussion of local history topics with specialist talks from visiting speakers and University of Nottingham academics.

We're pleased to return to in-person seminars this autumn. The University strongely encourages the continued use of facemasks in seminar rooms unless you are exempt due to a medical condition. Hand sanitiser will be available and please give those outside of your bubble plenty of space. 

This week

Please note for this week the seminar will take place in a different room to usual!

Opposite the entrance of Lenton Grove you will find the Humanities building. The seminar will take place here in Room A03 on the ground floor, right hand side just before you reach the corridor. There will be clear signs directing you to the correct room and, as this Saturday is also a University Open Day, there will be a student representative in the foyer of Humanities who can direct you to the correct room.

Saturday 9 October

Emeritus Professor John Beckett returns for our first Local History Seminar of the year to discuss his ongoing research and catch up in-person with regular attendees. Professor Beckett retired from university service in the summer of 2020 after running Local History Seminars for several years. This year he will be handing the proverbial baton of organiser to Dr Gaunt but will still be attending many of the seminars and continuing his ongoing research into local history.
