Let me introduce myself…..

Hi! My name is Becky Beach and I have recently been recruited as the Project Administrator to provide administrative support to the Waterloo 200 legacy project.

I have been working at the University of Kent for just over 4 years now with my main role here being in the Deans offices providing administrative support to the Deans, their PA’s and the three Faculty Heads of Administration. I have also had roles in the School of History, Centre for American Studies and the Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies, as Programmes Co-ordinator – I spent 15 months there and loved every second!

I keep myself busy outside of work ‘entertaining’ my 7 year old daughter, tending my allotment, socialising and planning fun events and trips with friends! I am also studying for an Access module in People, work and Society through the Open University, with the hope to go on and study for a degree, possibly in History, subsequently!

I am really looking forward to working on this project with you all and I hope that I can provide advice and assistance along the way! I hope to meet you very soon, but please feel free to email me whenever, in the meantime, if you have any questions at ageofrevolution@kent.ac.uk

Recruitment Begins…

The project began this November with the exciting call for volunteers that went around students at the University of Kent, and generated many responses. Over the next week, the project team will be identifying the students with the most potential to act as ambassadors for the project, on account of their expertise, prior interests, experiences, and future plans.


Rebecca Beach was appointed to the position of Revolutionary Administrator (!) on Wednesday 15 November, and from now through 2020 will be helping to coordinate all the activities that are going to be planned and delivered. We are delighted she is going to be with us, and will ask her to produce a blogpost soon about her background and interests.
