In a short episode Raf drops in to talk about the BSSH’s 2020 Conference which this year will be an online event to be held on 26th-28th August. The conference features a keynote from previous podcast guest Prashant Kidambi as well as a round table on the future of sports history with a diverse line up of leading sports historians. Registration will be free and open to all interested parties, not just BSSH members.
There’s also news of a symposium on Olympic and Paralympic history being organised by Helena Byrne of the British Library which will also be held online on the 19th June 2020.
And finally Raf talks about her article on Elyse Perry for this year’s Wisden.
