Charlotte Tomlinson joins Advisory Board for Centre for the History of People Place and Community

School of History researcher Charlotte Tomlinson has become an Advisory Board Member for the Centre for the History of People Place and Community.

Congratulations to Charlotte Tomlinson, who has recently joined the Institute of Historical Research (IHR)’s Centre for the History of People Place and Community as an ECR Advisory Board Member. 

The centre is a hub for training, events and a space to think about how people connect to the places around them, and have in the past. Charlotte has experience of working on several projects on place and community, most notably with The Hull Blitz Trail for Hull UK City of Culture 2017, and also recently working with the East End Women's Museum in London.

I'm absolutely thrilled to be be joining the advisory board for the IHR's new Centre for the History of People, Place, and Community. It's an honour to be playing a part in shaping the centre in such an exciting stage of its development, and to work alongside a really talented and inspiring group of people. I can't wait to get stuck in!
