The second Sport in History Podcast brought to you by the British Society of Sport History in association with the Institute of Historical Research features a paper by Lisa Taylor of Manchester Metropolitan University.
Lisa talked to us about the development of UK women’s rowing in the long 1960s which saw a greater level of achievement in international competition by British women despite the continuing concentration of resources on developing male rowing talent.
Geoff and Raf also discuss the next podcast in our series, which will feature the cricket historian Jeremy Lonsdale of the Association of Cricket Statisticians and Historians. Jeremy will be exploring the early history of Yorkshire cricket and the way in which cricket developed as a new way of earning a living for the common man in Yorkshire. There’s also news of the Society’s annual conference, which this year will be in Liverpool on the 6th and 7th September. It’s not too late to sign up!
Tune in for a lively discussion and a Q&A between Lisa and the seminar audience!
