What’s On: 10 April 2017

Our next EMMH postgrad forum session will be on 10 April 2017 at 5.15pm where we will hear more about how two of St Andrews’ Modern History PhD students engage with their research.

First up is Jamie Hinrichs, a first-year PhD working in Environmental history with Dr John Clark. She will give a paper titled, “John Muir: Peripatetic, Preservationist & Provoker of a PhD Pilgrimage” that explores how her love of the outdoors and one of it’s biggest proponents brought her to St Andrews as a PhD student.

Following Jamie will be Kimberly Sherman, third-year PhD in Scottish and Early American history with Professor Steve Murdoch and Dr Emma Hart. Kimberly will share her experiences working with microhistory, biography, and reading correspondence in a light-hearted look at the role of the historian in “Reading dead peoples’ mail: the historian and her subject”.

Join us from 5.15pm in St Katherine’s Lodge Room 1.10 for discussion. Refreshments will be provided, followed by a trip to the Brew Co. to continue discussion. **Please be aware that the doors to St Katherine’s are often locked at 5:00pm. Please plan accordingly.**
