My 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:
- The Gordon Riots (1780)
- The Hyde Park Railings Affair (1866)
- The Battle of Cable Street (1936)
- 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.
