New project launches.
#HCNet Network Chair David Churchill has begun a new research project: ‘Security for sale in modern Britain: security provision, ensembles and cultures, 1785-1995’.
Funded by an AHRC Leadership Fellowship, this project will document the rise of the security industry and analyse the economic, social and cultural consequences of security commodification in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
Further information on the project is available on the University of Leeds website at this link.
