This 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 speakers are Essex historians Dr Amanda Flather and Professor Alison Rowlands.
Amanda studied history at the University of Essex where she completed her doctorate in 2002. Her first book, Gender and Space in Early Modern England, which was published in 2007, is an attempt to explore the influence of gender on the use and organisation of space amongst early modern English men and women below the level of the elite.
Alison graduated with a First Class degree, then undertook doctoral research in early modern German history at Clare College, Cambridge. She completed her D.Phil. thesis, Women, Gender and Power in Rothenburg ob der Tauber and its Rural Environs, 1500-c.1618, in 1995, taught part-time at the University of Durham from 1990-92, then joined the Department of History at the University of Essex as a Lecturer in European History in 1992.
