Britian in the 1990s Collated Event Reports

by the Past & Present editorial team

Past & Present sponsored the creation of six blog posts by postgraduate students, which documented and critically engaged with the Past & Present supported workshop series hosted by Dr. David Geiringer (QMUL) and Dr. Helen McCarthy (Cambridge) under the title ‘Rethinking Britain in the 1990s: Towards a new research agenda’. The series ran between January and March 2021, bringing together contemporary historians from a range of career stages to map existing work and stimulate new thinking on a decade which, from the perspective of our present times, looks very unfamiliar indeed.
