Event description
This talk by Elizabeth Darling offers a different account of urban reform in Edwardian Edinburgh.

About this Event

It explores the many women – doctors, mothers, nurses, kindergartners, philanthropists – who worked together to change the living conditions of the communities in the city’s Old Town.

Dr Elizabeth Darling is Reader in Architectural History at Oxford Brookes University. Her research focuses on gender and reform, inter-war English architectural modernism, social housing and very often the intersections among them all. Her publications include Women and the Making of Built Space in England 1870-1950 (Ashgate, 2007) and Suffragette City: Gender, Politics and the Built Environment (Routledge 2019)

You will be sent a joining link to this lecture the day before the event.
