Stray Voices: The Unsettled History of Homelessness

‘Stray Voices’ is a new project at the Centre for Metropolitan History which explores the buried stories of homeless men and women whose voices remain silent or unheeded within the historical record. Various events are planned in connection with this project including a research-led guided walk, a forum theatre workshop and a two-day scholarly conference.

Day for New Research Students 2018

This day will provids an opportunity to learn about IHR publications on- and off-line and about the wide range of IHR activities – lectures, seminars, conferences and training courses available to postgraduate students in history and associated disciplines.

London's Women Historians

This project emerged from the conference ‘London’s women historians: a celebration and a conversation’ held at the Institute of Historical Research, University of London (IHR). The day ended with the launch of a portrait exhibition of 20 London women historians, now reproduced in this online exhibition.
