Weeping Britannia: Beyond the stiff upper lip 26 February 2015

Our lecture this month will be given by Dr Thomas Dixon, Reader in History at Queen Mary University of London. Dr Dixon is the Director of the Centre for the History of the Emotions.

Dr Dixon describes himself as 'a historian of philosophy, science, medicine and religion, with particular expertise in the history of the emotions and in Victorian intellectual and cultural history. In this lecture he will challenge the stereotype of the British 'stiff upper lip'.
