UCLHISTORY 2013 issue out now

25 April 2013

The latest issue of the newsletter for UCL History alumni is out now - and it's a packed issue.

There's a special report on a reunion of the class of 1967, while a PhD graduate of the Department remembers her '15 minutes of fame' as a biographer of Hannah More and William Wilberforce.  Tim Barnes of UCL Advances traces his path from medieval history student to leading-edge engagement with business and championing of entrepreneurship (and also shares some memories of Professor d'Avray...)

On a sadder note, we pay tribute to two Department members who sadly passed away in recent months, JH 'Jimmy' Burns and Margaret 'Peggy' Drower, of whom many students will have strong and fond memories.

Julian Hoppit uses the example of 'the mercantile system versus mercantilism' to consider historians' use of concepts, while Adam Smith gives an expert view on Spielberg's Lincoln, its basic truths and its wider context.

We meet two new members of the Department, Thomas Rath and David Sim, and Christopher Abel reflects on how he became a historian and on almost 40 years' connection with UCL.

Harry Stopes, a current PhD student in the Department, reports on a careers event at which three UCL History alumni shared their career perspectives.  Professor Stephen Conway reviews his first year as Head of Department; and there are also updates on recent publications by members of the Department and on recent and current research projects.
