Join Helen Carr and Suzannah Lipscomb in conversation about their latest book, What is History, Now?, a ground breaking collection of essays addressing the burning issue of how we interpret history today.
Inspired by the influential text What is History? authored by Helen Carr’s great-grandfather, E.H. Carr, What is History, Now? covers topics such as queer history, the history of faith, the history of disability, environmental history, the history of racism and anti-racism, escaping imperial nostalgia, hearing women’s voices and ‘rewriting’ the past.
Featuring a diverse mix of writers, with both bestselling names and emerging voices, the book is a timely collection studying our relationship with the past and the present.
Helen Carr and Suzannah Lipscomb will be in conversation with Jess Nelson, Head of Collections at The National Archives.
What’s Online is a series of talks, in conversation events and webinars delivered by The National Archives’ experts and special guests. Events last approximately one hour, including an audience Q&A.
This event will be presented on Microsoft Teams.
