Details

A firm favourite of the Gladstone’s Library calendar returns for another year!

Whether you’ve grown up with a love of history and Victoriana or you’re an academic with a penchant for the ‘Grand Old Man’, no matter your background the Gladstone Umbrella is the conference for you.

David Brooks was educated at Bedford School and Emmanuel College, Cambridge, of which he later became a Fellow. His doctoral thesis was on Gladstone’s Fourth Ministry, 1892-94, and his published works include The Destruction of Lord Rosebery, 1894 - 95 and The Age of Upheaval: Edwardian politics, 1899 - 1914. For most of his career he has taught in the School of History at Queen Mary University of London.
