The fifth Sport in History Podcast brought to you by the British Society of Sport History in association with the Institute of Historical Research continues the summer interview season. Today my guest is Prof Jean Williams of the University of Wolverhampton where she is professor of Sport in the Institute of Sport and Human Sciences. Jean has published extensively on the history of sport, including her seminal 2003 work on women’s football, ‘A Game for Rough Girls? A History of Women’s Football in England’
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.
