Dr. Selina Todd received her Ph.D. from Sussex University and is a Lecturer in Modern British History and a Fellow of St. Hilda’s College, University of Oxford.  Her research interests include the popular memory and the experience and representation of working-class people in nineteenth- and twentieth-century Britain.  She is currently completing a manuscript on the history of the British working class during the postwar decades (1945-1970) that examines how the working class became understood as the mainstream of British society and the effects this had on their lives.  Her book, Young Women, Work and Family in England 1918-1950, was published in 2005 by Oxford University Press.
