MEET THE HISTORIAN: Sally Alexander, 6pm, 22 Feb 2012, Room 104, South Block, Senate House, London WC1E 7HU
History Lab’s ‘Meet the Historian’ events are an opportunity to hear at first hand from noted historians how and why they became historians in the first place, their thoughts on research and the discipline generally, and about their latest work. There will be the chance to ask questions and enter into discussion, and to join the speaker for drinks after the talk.
