Helen is a historian, writer, TV producer and author of the bestselling biography of John of Gaunt, The Red Prince: John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster (Oneworld, 2021). Helen is passionate about making history —and how we study history — accessible, on the printed page and on the screen.
She is currently working on a doctorate in medieval history at Queen Mary University London and is due to publish What is History, Now? in September – a volume of essays from various expert historians, edited alongside Professor Suzannah Lipscomb.
What is History, Now? marks the 60th anniversary of Helen’s great-grandfather’s ground-breaking historiography, What is History? published in 1961.
The talk will last approximately 30-40 minutes, followed by a 15 minute Q&A.
Free. This online talk will be presented on Microsoft Teams.
