Hidden Histories of Women and Exploration

Women's History Month Event

Event Type: Branch

Takes Place: 18th March 2019

Time: 7.30 pm

Venue: Park Campus, University of Gloucestershire, Cheltenham

Description: The talk draws upon the speaker's research on the Collections of the Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers), which mapped out women’s participation in RGS-supported expeditions between 1913 and 1970. As well as charting the history of that participation, and drawing on the examples of a number of intrepid women from across the period, the talk will also focus on how to piece together archival traces to reconstruct the forgotten histories of women’s expeditionary work.

Price: Free to National HA Branch members, students (school and university). Visitors £3
