For the fifth Research Student Seminar of 2013 we have invited Professor Cornelie Usborne (University of Roehampton), who will talk about dealing with women’s experiences filtered through hostile – police and criminal court – sources, with reference to abortion and women’s illicit relationships with prisoners of war.

All Birkbeck history research students are welcome: the seminar takes place in G15, Malet Street (see map here) and will be followed by drinks and dinner at the Norfolk Arms, so please let Emma ( or Janet ( know if you’re planning on joining us there (we’ll be booking a table).

Three more seminars are on the schedule this term (which you can see here): next up is Dr Thomas Dixon (Queen Mary) on ‘Weeping Britannia: How and Why to Write the History of Tears’ on June 4, followed by Dr Hugh Bowden (King’s College London) on ‘History and the heroic individual: the difficulties of writing about Alexander the Great’ on June 18.
