We are running three Undergraduate Research Opportunity Programme placements this summer: ‘Offences against the person? Tracing hidden LGB histories through Berkshire court records and archives‘, ‘An Unconventional MP’: The political career of Nancy Astor in 50 documents‘ and ‘Hidden Voices: A digital exhibition of enslaved women in the lowcountry USA‘.
