Event description

Description

Inaugural lecture by Brad Beaven, Professor of Social and Cultural History, University of Portsmouth

The cultural life of port towns has largely remained a hidden history. Conventional histories of ports have focused on their global and imperial networks. In this talk, Brad Beaven explores these liminal urban spaces and the communities and sailors who lived in them. He reveals an urban district that was unconventional and often cosmopolitan, and one which visitors found both exotic and dangerous.

Date: Wednesday 29 March 2017
