Annual Fellows’ Lecture 2017 - 6 July 2017

Well-placed Women: Gender and Space in Bloomsbury, 1872-1927

Speaker: Dr. Lynne Walker, Senior Fellow

IHR Bloomsbury is normally understood as part of ‘the masculine domain of modern, public, urban life’. However, from the perspective of the women who lived and worked there, this highly patriarchal terrain can be viewed as a site of women’s buildings and social spaces in the heart of the city.

IHR Friends Summer Outing – Two Temple Place

Come along with the IHR Friends on an exciting tour of Two Temple Place, an extraordinary masterpiece of late Victorian architecture and design, on Monday 10 July 2017.
