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 University of Sussex historian Professor Claire Langhamer.

Claire is a social and cultural historian. Her work deals with the diverse ways in which ordinary people negotiated modernity in twentieth-century Britain. She was brought up in North Humberside. She completed her first degree in History at Manchester University in 1991 and conducted doctoral research with Dave Russell at the University of Central Lancashire, 1992-6. She started working at Sussex in 1998.
