The History Research Seminar meets on Wednesday afternoons during term time to discuss a paper by a visiting historian or a member of our academic staff.
This week's speaker is Essex historian Professor Lucy Noakes.
Lucy completed her undergraduate and masters study at the University of Sussex, and stayed at Sussex to study for a PhD. She went on to work at Southampton Solent University, the University of Portsmouth and the University of Brighton, joining Essex in 2017.
Lucy's research interests concern the social and cultural history of early to mid 20th century Britain, with a particular interest in the experiences and memories of those who experienced the First and Second World Wars. In this week's seminar she discusses the 'value' of bodies and the 'worth' of grief.
