Keynote speakers for the 2016 conference

First Keynote Speaker – Tuesday, November 29

Professor Kate Hodgkin

Professor Hodgkin became a member of the Raphael Samuel History Centre team in 2004, and University of East London Director in the Centre since 2013. Most recently she has been very much involved in organising the big conference held this summer to mark the twentieth anniversary of Raphael Samuel’s death, Radical Histories/ Histories of Radicalism. Professor Hodgkin’s keynote will address the ways that Raphael Samuel’s work emphasised history beyond the university, how the Centre has tried to follow that through, and how the changing character and politics of higher education in the UK and beyond has reshaped the work of the Raphael Samuel History Centre. Professor Hodgkin also has a broad interest in work relating to history and memory, the history of the emotions, and history and psychoanalysis.

Second Keynote Speaker – Wednesday, November 30

Dr Sally Bryant

Dr Sally Bryant has twenty five years of experience in nature conservation policy, planning and research, and an in-depth knowledge of threatened birds and island ecosystems. Sally is an Adjunct Lecturer at the University of Tasmania, sits on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Ecological Management & Restoration, and has travelled widely, publishing on a range of conservation and natural history issues. Sally manages the science program of the Tasmanian Land Conservancy -Tasmania’s second largest private land owner. The vision of the TLC is for Tasmania to be a global leader in nature conservation, and in many ways that vision is close to attainment. This address reinforces that the most effective way to achieve nature conservation is in partnership with others through the four C’s philosophy of: Conservation, Commerce, Community and Culture. Sally also believes that the more we learn the less we know, but by fostering a connection to place, ‘anything is possible’.
