How can historical knowledge help us to make sense of communities like Rotherham?

Elizabeth Pente, Paul Ward

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

What counts as historical knowledge is transformed when people - as organic intellectuals - are placed at the centre of the research process. Histories of Rotherham blossom into histories of global significance through an exploration of the intersections between the local – histories of our street and our house – and the rest of the world, through questions of mobility and movement.
