Radical history today: come and meet the Raphael Samuel History Centre
The Raphael Samuel History Centre is a four-way partnership between Queen Mary, Birkbeck, the University of East London, and Bishopsgate Institute. In the spirit of its founder – the socialist historian Raphael Samuel (1934-1996) – the Centre is dedicated to fostering radical history in and beyond the academy. Its members work in many areas, from London history and ‘heritage’ studies to histories of sexuality, memory studies, psychoanalytical history, history and public policy, and the history of feminism. We have many postgraduates among our members.
Come and meet us! We are holding an open forum on Monday February 9th at 5.30 pm in the Arts 2 Building, 4th floor Senior Common Room (Queen Mary UL, Mile End Road, London E1 4NS).
Barbara Taylor (QMUL director of the RSHC) will speak briefly about the Centre’s work, followed by short presentations from two or three of our postgraduate members, then general discussion. Wine and nibbles will be served. All welcome!
