Locality and Region Seminar 2015-16

The seminar welcomes all those who are interested in the relationship between local and national history and who wish to share ideas, viewpoints and work in progress. It seeks to make an original contribution to local and regional history by drawing upon the long-established national resources of the VCH and co-operating with participants from universities, record offices, local history societies and heritage organisations, as well as with those engaged in independent research. If you would like to join our e-mailing list, please contact rebecca.read@sas.ac.uk.

‘Such obscene language and practices, as no woman ought to witness’: vice and moral reform in eighteenth-century St Clement Danes
