In 2017, as Director of the Centre for Public History, I launched a series of lunchtime masterclasses for postgraduate students and early career researchers. These informal gatherings over lunch involved the guest 'in conversation' with a host, followed by a substantial Q&A session. Guests were leading scholars and practitioners in the broad field of public history, who were here to participate in conferences or deliver lectures and included:- David Armitage, Lloyd C. Blankfein Professor of History, Harvard University- Catherine Hall, Professor Emeritus of History, UCL, Director of the Centre for the    Study of the Legacies of Slave-ownership- Ludmilla Jordanova, Professor Emeritus of History and Visual Culture, Durham      University - Deborah Mack, Director of Strategic Partnerships, Smithsonian National Museum for      African-American History and Culture- Amanda Vickery, Professor of Modern History QMUL, TV and radio presenter-
