Lifelong Learning Staff and Students in print
2016 has seen both Lifelong Learning staff and students in print. Two recently published books offer insights in to the lives of Welsh women over the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
A Destested Occupation: A History of Domestic Servants in North Wales 1800-1930 is written by Annie Williams, a long time tutor of the Welsh Women's History module and a key contributor to the MA Women's Studies programme as a whole. The book has been very well received and Annie is busy delivering talks on the topic across the region. Annie's work on Welsh Women's History is key to understanding women's lives in Wales, especially the lives of north Wales women. It is a revealing and important insight into the ways that women had to work and the way they were treated then. It also leads on to a better understanding of current inequalities and their roots in history. (published by: Gwasg Carreg Gwalch 2016)
Also published this year is MAMWLAD: Merched Dylanwadol Cymru by Beryl H Griffiths. This book is based on the S4C series MAMWLAD. Included in the volume is a chapter on Margaret Haig Thomas 1883-1958 and one of our MA students, Mair Morris, is extensively cited. Mair's MA dissertation was based on the life of Margaret Haig Thomas. Unfortunately Mair lost her life to cancer before she could complete her work. We are proud of her efforts and that her work is recognised and included in productions of national significance. (published by Gwasg Carreg Gwalch 2016).
