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)

All our lecture mornings cost £9 and include a friendly lecture where you can meet our guest lecturer, have coffee and cakes and get a special tour.
