emma vickersFebruary is the month that celebrates diversity and the University of Winchester’s Modern History Research Centre (MHRC) invites a guest speaker to talk about their research connected to diversity in history. For this academic year the Centre has chosen the theme of LGBT history, and Dr Emma Vickers (Liverpool John Moores University) will talk about ‘Sanctuary or sissy? Male cross-dressing as entertainment in the British Armed Forces, 1939-1945’ on the 10th February 2017.

In connection to this public lecture event and in partnership with Winchester Discovery Centre, the MHRC is also organising an exhibition where ten Postgraduates and Early Career Researchers will produce research posters on historical perspectives and events of LGBT communities in modern history (eighteenth century to present), which will be displayed in the gallery of the Winchester Discovery Centre (with a formal opening of the exhibition on the 10th February).

Please come along. For more information contact Dr Xavier Guégan (
