The Department of History welcomes Dr. Erika Rappaport from University of California at Santa Barbara to deliver the Stafford Lecture.

Erika Rappaport has written, Shopping for Pleasure: Women in the Making of London’s West End (2000), co-edited Consuming Pleasures: Identity, Politics and Pleasure in Twentieth-Century Britain (2015) and recently published A Thirst for Empire: How Tea Shaped the Modern World (2017), a history of tea that explores the connections between imperialism, consumerism, and globalization from the seventeenth to twentieth centuries.

This lecture is made possible by endowment income from the Helen G. Stafford Fund. The lecture honors the memory of Helen G. Stafford, a prominent historian from England who served as chair of the Westhampton College History Department from 1948 to 1958.

The lecture is free and open to the public.
