The History Society Podcast

The History Society is an organisation run by and for History students at Oxford Brookes University. Each year, the Society’s Lecture Series hosts leading scholars from around the world who deliver papers which explore the historical roots of big issues that shape our world today. Each speaker approaches their subject from different disciplinary, temporal, and geographical perspectives. All of them, however, use a historical lens to illuminate uncovered aspects of problems that we grapple with in the modern world, touching on topics from politics to race, empire to technology, and health to gender. The History Society Podcast makes these lectures available to the public so that audiences beyond Oxford Brookes University can enjoy and learn from them.

This latest episode marks something of a departure for the Poetry Centre podcast. If you’re a regular or just occasional listener to this podcast, you’ll know that it normally features a poet in conversation about two or three of their poems.
