About the seminar

This free public event is an excellent way to hear about new railway research as well as to ask questions and network with those with similar interests. The speakers are Dr David Turner and current PhD student Sophie Vohra.

David is Associate Lecturer at the University of York’s Centre for Lifelong Learning and runs the postgraduate diploma in Railway Studies. His talk will be on 'Damage, delay and disappearance - sending beer by rail before 1914'.

Sophie is a University of York and National Railway Museum Collaborative Doctoral Award student, who is researching Railways and Commemoration for her PhD. Her talk will highlight her research findings to date.

The seminar looks to be an interesting session covering two rarely discussed topics on the agenda.
