I’m cheating a little this week by pointing you to someone else’s blog instead of anything I’ve written myself. Josh Allen is an MA student on the excellent Modern British Studies programme at UoB and very kindly got in touch to do an interview for his blog, Unstable Praxis. You can read a bit more about me as a failed sound engineer and budding urban historian here, plus make sure to read the other excellent interviews with a wide range of historians: Tom Hulme on inter-war historical pageants; Otto Samaurez-Smith on post-war architecture; and Lauren Piko on the much-maligned Milton Keynes.

You should also read Josh’s own work – his blog but also his fantastically heartfelt post on the MBS blog on Birmingham Central Library.
