To Retrieve a Good Name Lost: Gender, Honor, and Reputation in Modern Britain, c. 1840-1950
February 23, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Caroline Shaw is an Associate Professor of History at Bates College. She is an historian of Britain in the world, with a particular interest in tracing how Britain’s distinctive, self-conscious, often troubled role in the world shaped its contribution to the origins of modern rights and humanitarian outreach. As the modern Europeanist in the department, she situates Europe in its broader global contexts as well. Among others, her courses include explorations of human rights in history, revolutionary Europe, modern Britain, sex and the modern city, empire and decolonization, and the history of race, migration and difference in European history.
This lecture is organized by the UNC Department of History. It will take place in the main conference room of the National Humanities Center.
