Join Professor Martin Johnes as he discusses ‘A History of Christmas in Modern Britain’.
This talk will examine some of the ways in which celebrations of Christmas have changed – and often not changed – over the last 200 years. It argues that Christmas is an integral part of British culture and can be used to explore wider ideas of religion, class, gender and nationhood.
Martin Johnes is Professor of History at Swansea University. A historian of modern Wales and of popular culture in modern Britain, he has published widely on subjects including politics, sport, race, national identity, pop music, disasters and local government, including ‘Christmas and the British: A Modern History’ (2016).
