Our third seminar of the term will be given by a Dr John Law from the University of Westminster. He'll be talking to us on a subject drawn from his forthcoming book on Americans visiting or living in Britain in the 1950s and their (sometimes horrified) reactions to what they found there.
Our second seminar of the term will be given by a post-graduate researcher from the University of Wolverhampton, Amanda Callan-Spenn. Her subject, Sarah Meyer, is a woman whose career reads like the plot of a Booker-shortlisted novel.
Our first seminar features two speakers. Raf Nicholson, will talk about international women's cricket during the apartheid era while Richard Parry will discuss cricket among indigenous mineworkers on the Rand. And I'll be acting as chair in my capacity both as co-convenor of the seminar and a contributor to the book of a chapter on the first South African men's cricket captain, Percy Sherwell. Do come along and to listen to our guests and to join in the debate about the role of sport in the development of South African society in the twentieth century.
