Lesley Hall's Web Pages

(www.lesleyahall.net)

Here since 1998

(Yes, I know the site design is showing its age: however, it's practically a historic artefact in its own right by now. Maybe I could get it listed as a heritage item.)

'And in the course of one revolving moon,
Was chemist, fiddler, statesman, and buffoon'
(Dryden, Absalom and Achitophel)
What I sometimes feel like, as a full-time professional archivist, actively publishing historian in several overlapping fields, would-be writer of science fiction and fantasy, cook.... with never enough time to keep up with general reading.

I created the initial version of these pages in late December 1998, to reflect my interests in the history of gender and sexuality, feminist science fiction and fantasy, and as a professional archivist (at the Wellcome Institute for the History of Medicine, now the Wellcome Library, for these many years) and addicted acquirer of books: see 'Contents' below. Since then I've been expanding and updating them to provide what I hope is a useful information resource for people who are interested in the same sorts of things. The site includes a still rather embryonic History of Sexuality Research Interests Register, a number of my own reviews and Recommended Reading, unpublished papers on various topics, material on women and medicine, and a women's history walk round Bloomsbury, as well as possibly the only place on the entire Web where you can find instructions on how to make sheepgut condoms, and other interesting condom facts and pictures. Plus The Clitoris: historical myths and facts, and Literary abortion . And, British Women Writers, 1910s-1960s: the 'middlebrows'. Not to mention the much-visited Victorian Sex Factoids.
