The J M Ward Memorial Lecture
Sheila Fitzpatrick - Writing Memoirs, Writing History
Reflections of a historian-cum-autobiographer whose recent memoir, A Spy in the Archives, takes her back to Cold War Moscow in the 1960s – territory she would usually enter in her capacity as Soviet historian. What is the difference between the two genres? If (as the Soviets thought) historians are something like spies, ferreting out hidden secrets, does the same apply to autobiographers?
The lecture will be followed by a reception.
