Sport and Leisure History Seminar

Untitled.jpeg

One of the perks of being a part-time academic is having to do lots of unpaid work aimed at raising ones profile within your discipline. However, sometimes this work is more a pleasure than a chore. Such is the case with being a co-convenor on the IHR’s (Institute of Historical Research) Sport and Leisure History seminar series.

I’ve been the co-ordinator for this term’s series which has the theme of the military and war. And we’ve got a cracking line up of speakers, beginning with Prof Gary Sheffield of the University of Wolverhampton speaking on sport during World War 1.

These seminars are free and open to both academics and the interested public. Come along to the IHR in Senate House on Monday at 5.30 to hear Gary present his latest research, and to have the opportunity for discussion afterwards.

I’ll be flagging up future speakers in future posts so keep an eye out if the subject catches your imagination.
