This seminar is one of the results of the Centre for the History of People, Place and Community’s first paid internships, which took place in the summer of 2021. 

How can historical research projects reach out to wider audiences? How are the histories of communities perceived? 

Our Early Career speakers will introduce their work on building upon the Centre’s resources and building connections with different communities informed by their research. Vesna Curlic, in partnership with London’s Jewish Museum and our Layers of London project has built upon the Victoria County History’s (VCH) accounts of Jewish life and histories in the counties of Middlesex and Surrey which now form part of greater London.

Dr Joe Chick has taken the VCH’s app ‘A History of English Places’ and constructed a series of themed walks around some of England’s historic towns, spanning the Roman history of Colchester, the impact of the Dissolution in Read and the coming of the Spa to Buxton.

These paid internships were supported by the generosity of the IHR’s supporters. For more on the Institute’s Internship Programme, please see the IHR website.

All welcome- this seminar is free to attend, but advance registration is required.
