A conversation for the interest of students and practitioners of History and others interested in scholarly approaches and attitudes to biography and autobiography as historical methods.

Professor Caine is author of Biography and History and books on the Strachey family, English feminism, Victorian feminists, and the sisters of Beatrice Webb, among other works. Professor Caine's current research is on the history of women's autobiography from the mid 18th century to the present.
