History: Opium, Modern China & The Long Memory Of War With Britain – Professor Anne Gerritsen From University of Warwick
Monday 15th November: 11:20 - 12:20

In this session, Professor Anne Gerritsen from the History Department at Warwick, will begin with the Opium War (1839-1842), and give an insight into why these two great empires (the British and the Qing) clashed so violently in the first half of the nineteenth century.

The session will then focus on the Treaty of Nanking, signed in 1842, and ask why this came known as the first of the so-called Unequal Treaties. The second half of the talk will focus on how the Opium War, and especially the Unequal Treaties, have shaped China in the twentieth century. Here, we will discuss why the Opium Wars and the ‘century of humiliation’ have had such lasting impact on China’s perception of itself as a modern nation.

History: Why Did It Take So Long For Women To Get The Vote In Britain? With Professor Sarah Richardson From University of Warwick
Monday 29th November: 09:10 - 10:10

On 7 June 1866, the philosopher and MP, John Stuart Mill presented the first mass women’s suffrage petition to the House of Commons. A year later, in May 1867, Mill put forward an amendment to the Second Reform Bill to replace the word ‘man’ with ‘person’ and thus extend the vote to women. The petition and amendment failed but did give rise to organised associations to campaign for women to get the vote. However, it took more than 50 years until the Representation of the People Act in 1918 gave the vote to women over the age of 30.

Why did it take so long? And who was to blame?

Sarah Richardson discusses some of these questions in this session on women’s suffrage.
