First History English Festival hosted by UCS Bury St Edmunds
UCS Bury St Edmunds held its first ever Festival of History and English exclusively for students last Wednesday (27) with speakers invited from several different universities.
Highlights of the all day event included a presentation on Arrows, Wolves and Wuffings: Finding St Edmund in East Anglian Churches, by Dr Rebecca Pinner from the University of East Anglia.
There was also a lively demonstration of protest songs by Dr Adrian May (University of Essex) and a fascinating talk on Dr Dilwyn Porter (De Montfort University), The ‘Daily Mirror’, its readers and their money.
The event was organised by History Lecturer Radojka Startup and English Literature Lecturer Virginia Geraghty.
