'Admiring the pugilistic art?’

February 23, 2016

Congratulations to USW History postgraduate Chris Gardiner, whose paper ‘Admiring the pugilistic art?’ Newspaper reports on boxing in nineteenth-century South Wales has been accepted for the next conference of the North American Association for the Study of Welsh Culture and History (NAASWCH).

Chris, a Ph.D student, will explore the transition of prize-fighting from a largely unstructured ‘entertainment’ into an increasingly regulated sport in industrial Wales. The NAASWCH 2016 conference will be held at Harvard University in July 2016.
