Talk: Council housing

Wed 24 Oct 2018, 7pm, Studio, University of Sheffield Students Union, Western Bank S10 2TG

John Boughton is the researcher and writer behind the website Municipal Dreams. He presents "Municipal Dreams: The Rise and Fall of Council Housing", a history of local authority housing in the UK, including Sheffield.

Researcher and writer Richard MacLean Smith talks about his book "Unexplained". Based on his podcast series Unexplained, it covers strange unsolved mysteries from around the world, analysed with open minded scepticism. Subjects range from political conspiracy theories to historical cases, and whether things traditionally thought to be supernatural may in fact lead to new scientific discoveries.
