History and Politics Seminar on Wednesday: Housing the Citizen-Consumer in Post-war Britain

Please join us this coming Wednesday (22 February) for the latest paper in the History and Politics Seminar Series.

Dr Alistair Kefford (Lecturer in Modern British History, University of Manchester) will present on ‘Housing the Citizen-Consumer in Post-war Britain’.

We meet in GM 303; there is tea and coffee from 4pm and the paper starts at 4.15.

Alistair’s research bridges the divide between ‘the political’ and ‘the cultural’ in modern British history, and through his focus on the geographies, economies and governance of cities his work speaks not only to the historical discipline but also to those working in urban studies, geography, political economy and to those interested in present-day urban policy. Given the devolution and ‘Northern Powerhouse’ agendas, this promises to be a very timely paper. All welcome!

Finally, a date for your diaries: after a one-month hiatus our final seminar of the year takes place on Wednesday 15 March: 

‘Racially Polarised Partisanship under the Obama Presidency’ by Richard Johnson (University of Oxford).

Lecturer in Modern History
