Raphael Samuel History Centre

In 2013 I was invited to become an Associate of the Raphael Samuel History Centre (RSHC)

The RSHC is a research and educational centre devoted to encouraging the widest possible participation in historical research and debate. In particular, I have helped to develop the gender and sexualities stream at the RSHC, which includes editing the Notches blog, co-convening the IHR History of Sexuality Seminar, and other initiatives in collaboration with the Bishopsgate Institute, London and the London Metropolitan Archives.

 About the Centre:

The Raphael Samuel History Centre was founded in 1995 to promote research into the modern history of East London. Since then its remit has broadened to London history in general; comparative metropolitan histories; memory studies; and psychoanalytic approaches to history. The Centre is interdisciplinary in approach, combining the interests of social and cultural historians with those of researchers in adjacent disciplines, especially cultural and political studies, English literature, and human geography. In September 2009, the Centre was relaunched as a three-way partnership between the University of East London (UEL), Birkbeck, University of London and the Bishopsgate InstituteQueen Mary, University of London joined the partnership in 2012. This partnership enables a substantial expansion of the Centre’s work on many fronts, including new research projects, collaborative study programmes and public events. The goal is to for the centre to become a national hub for historians working at all levels.
