The first episode of the History Workshop Podcast. In this episode, six scholars in the early stages of their careers gather to discuss a big problem plaguing higher education: precarious working conditions for university lecturers and teachers. It’s an issue that impacts thousands across the UK… if these conditions are left as they are, the quality of education in universities can only diminish, and we could be denied promising scholarship from a new generation of experts.
Listen to Laura Schwartz (Warwick), Harry Stopes (UCL), Rob Waters (New York University London), Alva Traebert (Edinburgh) and Jack Saunders (Warwick, FACE) in conversation with History Workshop Online editor, Hannah Elias.
Recorded at the Radical Histories/Histories of Radicalism conference at Queen Mary University of London, July 2016.
