I direct this centre, which aims to be the principal focus for research at Birmingham on the history of Britain, Europe and the wider world since WW1.
Drawing together expertise from across the College of Arts and Law, the Centre provides a unique intellectual forum for academic staff and postgraduates working within the field, and a base for research both for its members and in collaboration with other institutions. The Centre is ideally located for research on any aspect of the modern world and hosts a flourishing MA in Contemporary History.
I co-convene this seminar at the IHR and am currently lead convener.
Venue: Wolfson Room NB02, Basement, IHR, North block, Senate House unless otherwise stated
