Historian of the city, politics, and society
New History Lab is a seminar series at the University of Leicester, organized by graduate students in the School of History. Since I arrived in Leicester in September, they’ve hosted speakers on everything from local Leicester history to witchhunts to strategies for getting by in grad school.
I’m very happy to have been invited to do one of the Labs, and on November 11th I’ll be discussing my research on the sex industry in downtown Toronto. The talk is co-hosted by the Centre for Urban History–where I am currently a visiting fellow–and already has a gorgeous poster prepared by Lab organizer Sam Grinsell, with a memorable 1970s image by Toronto photographer Citatus.
