Free Online Talk: The Domestic Work of Women At Oxford’s Colleges

Loading Events

Celebrate International Women’s Day this month with the Museum of Oxford!

Join us online to hear Kathryne Crossley talk about the history of women working in the service sector at Oxford Colleges during the 19th and early 20th centuries. The comfortable lifestyle enjoyed by students and academics at the University of Oxford depended on the work of these local women.

Kathryne Crossley is an early career researcher in labour history, having recently completed a DPhil in Economic and Social History at the University of Oxford. Her thesis examines the lives of the men, women and children who worked as domestic servants in Oxford colleges in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

The talk will be live streamed on Monday 14th March, 6pm-7.15pm. The talk will be recorded, so you can watch it online for up to a month after the event.

Recommended donation of £5.
