INVITATION to a Preliminary Report

November 6, 2018

HARN founder, Pamela Jane Smith, has issued the following invitation:

INVITATION to a Preliminary Report by Pamela Jane Smith on
oral-histories of women-in-Cambridge, 21st November, Wednesday, 1 till
2pm Wolfson College, Combination Room.

“Small, Dark and Alive” to “Crippling Shy” a review of Dorothy
Garrod’s experience as the first female Professor at Cambridge in the
light of recent experiences of women in Cambridge.
Pamela’s original Garrod essay is here

Pamela’s early research was based on in-depth interviews with Garrod’s 
family, her students and colleagues, and, in order to re-evaluate 
Garrod’s experiences, Pamela is now collecting comparative oral 
histories of women in Cambridge to answer the query, ‘how does your life 
history compare with Dorothy Garrod’s’? ‘What has changed’?

If you wish to join this study and be recorded, please contact Pamela here.
