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 speaker is University of Roehampton historian Dr Caroline Sharples.

Caroline specialises in modern German history, specifically memories of National Socialism and representations of the Holocaust. She has published on the resonance of war crimes trials in 1960s West Germany, as well as the remembrance of the Kindertransport within Britain. She is currently working on a major study of death, burial practices, memorials and commemorative rituals before, during and after the Third Reich.
