IMG_7941My name is Hannah Awcock, I am a third year PhD student in the department of Geography at Royal Holloway, University of London. I am researching the historical geography of protest in London since 1780, with a particular focus on how events interact with space and place. My PhD looks at 4 case studies:

  1. The Gordon Riots (1780)
  2. The Hyde Park Railings Affair (1866)
  3. The Battle of Cable Street (1936)
  4. The Student Tuition Fee Protests (2010)

This blog is about my research, both the subject matter and the process. It is also about the history of protest of London more generally.

  1. Hi Hannah, I spotted one of my “you are nice” stickers on your website. If you would like some for yourself, head over to my site at http://www.youarenice.co.uk I have been sending them all over the world since 2014 to help spread some much needed niceness in the world. Keep up the good work and great website. 🙂


    • Hi Mark, it is great to hear from you! I’m glad you like the blog, and I think your website is great, particularly the map of niceness! I have sent a request for some stickers, thank you 🙂
