23.05.20 / i mentioned i was working on a “complete character profile” spreadsheet not too long ago and i promise i’d share it so it’s here if you’re interested! also, the revision continues! i compulsively decided to migrate all my notes to a loose leaf notebook so my hands will have to suffer for a while lol. but seriously, i personally retain information through revision best so my brain is thriving and absorbing lots. what about you? what are you up to? hope you have a lovely weekend ♡

2, 24, and 35! 😊

2. Give us an unpopular/controversial opinion

The studyblr community sometimes has high standard for what’s pretty or not tbh… not everyone was born a good photo taker/editor

24. What’s your Harry Potter house?

I’m a Ravenclaw :D

35. Give an inside joke with no context

You’re a detergent.

I was tagged by this wonderful person @historicalemily​ to do the 11 question tag (sorry for taking a while to complete!)
(i’m also going to be a spoil sport and not retag anyone - I’ve not spoken to anyone on here in a year so I’ve got no idea who’s still active :/) 

My Questions (I’ve decided to make these historically based sooo)

(My answers are mainly all on sexuality.. sorry!! And it’s long.. oops)

1. Favorite historical period/area to study?

My favourite historical period to study is England in 1900-1935, and my favourite area of this is female same-sex desire and cross-dressing (and also sexology!). England came a long way during this time for women who liked other women, and the 1920s were (in my opinion) monumental in how we see women who desire other women in today’s society. (The 1920s was also where the butch/femme lines got defined that are used today, which I find really interesting!)

2. Coolest historical figure?

Maud Allan, because she’s often written out of history. Although Radclyffe Hall is up there but she wasn’t a nice person irl from all accounts

3. Is there a period of history that you think is overlooked?

My period (obviously I’m going to say this, but it’s true)… There’s one historian who wrote in his PhD that ‘lesbianism was invisible [within the sources used in their monograph]’, hence his exclusion of women who desired other women. So I wrote my undergrad dissertation challenging him, using exactly the same source types he had used… Yes, I’m petty

4. If you could live in one time period for a day, what period would it be? (Even though we all know that living in most time periods would be crap because idk diseases? and racism? repressive societies? but just go with me pls)

Upper class London in the late 1920s, or the 1980s.. 

5. What is the most useless history fact you know?

Women weren’t thought to be able to initiate sex, as it was believed they had no sexual desire… 

6. Do you think history is taught well in schools?

Ha. no. In England it’s horrifically white washed, straight and you’re literally taught that England is the best country in the World and we win everything. As in, when you’re studying WW1 and WW2, you’re taught it was England vs Germany (and the main countries of the Axis and Allies). You’re NOT taught about the role of the countries in the British Empire.

I’m so grateful for my A-Level History teacher, as she literally sat my class down on the first day and said ‘I’ll teach you the syllabus but I’ll also teach you the actual history’. We did the rise of Churchill, and in England you’re brought up to believe that Churchill is this amazing man, whom everyone loved and wanted as PM, was a saviour and was a brilliant mastermind. Let’s politely say, that’s far from the truth. 

7. Best history meme?

I can’t show the one I want because my lecturers made themselves into a mean when BlackBoard went down last year & they’ll hate me if I put it up.

8. What is the funniest history story you know? (I’m talking Stephen of Blois being shamed by his wife after he abandoned the First Crusade or the hilariously botched assassination of Franz Ferdinand)

Probably the upper-class guy who completely misunderstood the libel trail in 1918 between Maud Allan and the MP Noel Pemberton-Billing, who was confused by it all (and wtf was going on) and said ‘ I have never heard of this Greek chap Clitoris that they are talking of’. (For background, Pemberton-Billing wrote an article called ‘The Case of the Clitoris’; leading people to believe Allan was a lesbian). I find it funny. 

9. Read any good history books lately?

Tipping the Velvet by Sarah Waters 

Look Who’s Back - Timur Vermes

10. What is your least favorite period/area of history to study?

Anything before the middle ages

11. What is your response when people tell you that you shouldn’t study history? (it’s more common than you think tbh)

I get this all the time, more so when people find out what my favourite/ specialist area is. I just tell them to suck it up. Someone has to study it, it’s interesting.
