On 23 October 2012 I’ll be presenting a paper at the Oxford Economic and Social History Seminar on working-class families in the 1950s. You can read the paper on the Essays page of this website. Alternatively, come along! The seminar is at 5.00pm at All Souls, Oxford. You can find out more about the seminar series here. If you’re interested, you might like to know more about the fascinating work of two of the seminar’s convenors (and intellectual inspirations of mine) Prof Jane Humphries and Dr Deborah Oxley.
