Carrie Hamilton is Reader in History at the University of Roehampton. She has been involved in two major oral history projects: the first on women, nationalism and political violence in the Basque Country, and more recently a collective oral history on the Cuban Revolution. She is the author of two books based on these projects: Women and ETA: The Gender Politics of Radical Basque Nationalism (University of Manchester Press, 2007) and Sexual Revolutions in Cuba: Passion, Politics, and Memory (University of North Carolina Press, 2012). She is also the author of numerous articles and book chapters on oral history, memory, political activism and feminism. She is a former editor of Oral History and is currently on the editorial collective of Feminist Review. She has recently joined the team of the Raphael Samuel History Centre.
Dr. Hamilton’s current research focuses on environmental history, posthumanism and animal welfare activism in Europe and Latin America. She has just completed an article in Spanish on history, emotions and oral history based on interviews with British animal welfare activists archived at the British Library.
