Places, people and pageants: Writing and performing local histories

Header image for Title

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 24th Jan 2024

 Free

Local history has often been marginalised from ‘mainstream’ academic history, but it has flourished in adult education, and has been at the centre of productive interdisciplinary developments in both teaching and research. It has also been a substantial vector of what is now termed ‘impact’, through its ability to engage local communities in inventive and sometimes surprising ways.

In this lecture, Mark will discuss the impact of historical pageants on people and places, and the extent to which local historians have participated in it.

This in-person event will be particularly useful for researchers, policy makers, teachers and students. Each lecture is free and open to everyone - staff, students and members of the public.
