COMMITTEE - Michaelmas 2020


Milo is a second-year student reading History at St John’s College. On the committee since Hillary 2020, he has previously served as Events Director and Treasurer. He believes strongly that stories lie at the heart of history and so in planning for Hillary 2021 is keen to ensure that the society puts on a wide range of exciting and varied events. Outside of OUHS, he enjoys watching Arsenal win, celebrating the life of Gustavus Adolphus and dabbling with a bit of Dostoevsky.  

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.

Natasha is a second-year History and English student at Exeter. She’s interested in the interaction between literature and history, with a particular focus on the early modern period and how political and religious upheavals were captured, but also propelled, by literary works. Having attended various OUHS talks in her first year, she’s excited to be part of the team working behind the scenes to deliver a varied and exciting programme this term. Outside of her studies and work with OUHS, she’s  training to be a peer supporter and enjoys wild swimming and poetry.

He strongly believes in the importance of OUHS to make history accessible and the perfect platform for an open dialogue. He cannot wait to grow the Journal’s readership even more during Michaelmas Term. Outside of OUHS, he is also editor for various student publications, including the Isis and the Oxford Blue.

Ying Ying is a second-year student reading History at The Queen’s College. She has served as events director on the committee since Hilary 2020 and is excited to introduce intersectional history during more OUHS events! She is drawn to subaltern history, intellectual history, and more specifically the development of anti-imperialist movements in the interwar years. When not running OUHS events and cramming in the library, she volunteers with Queen’s Homeless Support, goes to ballet classes, and attempts to achieve a healthy lifestyle by doing her daily pilates workout.
