COMMITTEE - Michaelmas 2020

 

Bethan is a masters student reading Modern British History at Exeter College. Her main areas of historical interests include gender history, Victorians & the British Empire, and the history of the supernatural.   She is excited to be working as Social Media Director in Michaelmas 2020, bringing you information about the course and the exciting events of OUHS!

Rachel is a second-year History student at Balliol College. Her standard line is that it is thinking with an historical mindset as opposed to about any specific period that interests her, but somehow she keeps coming back to seventeenth century Europe! Alongside OUHS, she enjoys playing hockey and tennis, getting involved in college am-dram, and playing piano.

Jagyoseni is a Doctoral student in History of Science and Medicine at Christ Church College. She is particularly interested in studying the Globalisation of Indigenous medicine and the history of (infectious) disease. She also loves studying intellectual, political and socio-economic history. She believes history is a fascinating door to the present. As Secretary, she has a lot of exciting new ideas for the society in Hilary 2021 that she is very eager to turn into reality. When she is not working on her thesis sitting in her favourite corner in the Radcliffe Camera, she enjoys working on her YouTube Channel. She is also a trained Bharatnatyam dancer who loves reading poetry and watching historical documentaries to unwind. She hopes to take up journalism in her second term in Oxford and work as a peer supporter.

Ciara is a first year History student at Hertford. She serves on the History Faculty's Race Equality Action Group student steering committee and is and is passionate about making history more representative and inclusive of all stories and narratives. Her interests include the colonial experiences of India and Ireland, US political history and the long history of immigration.

 

Nicole is a second-year historian at Teddy Hall. She is interested in the late Medieval period, specifically the ways in which new, global approaches inform our understanding of processes and networks within both written and material culture. As sponsorship director, she looks forward to working collaboratively with the rest of the team. Outside of OUHS, she enjoys creative writing, reading (and criticising) anything by Murakami, as well as long walks and dim sum.

Katy is a masters student reading Modern British History at St Benet’s Hall. Her main area of interest is women’s history, particularly concerning employment and motherhood, but she is also passionate about sub-culture and protest history of the 20th century. She is very excited to be on the OUHS committee for Hilary term and is looking forward to meeting you all at the upcoming events. In her spare time Katy enjoys live music, long walks exploring Oxford, and anything Tolkien-related!

Social Secretary

Elizabeth Down

Merton

Elizabeth is a second-year undergraduate reading History at Merton. This is her first term on the committee, and she’s very excited to get started and meet more historians around Oxford. Her interests include socialist history, women’s history, and looking at pretty historical clothing. When not doing OUHS things, she likes to worry about whether her plants are dying, and start new craft hobbies before abandoning them in a week.

Social Media Director

Michael Zwiauer

Worcester

Michael is a Master’s student reading British and European History 1700-1850 at Worcester College. Prior to his academic life, Michael trod the boards as a professional actor for three years in his native city of Vienna.

Outside of OUHS, he enjoys watching Spurs win, listening to Richard Strauss and drinking red wine.
