Accepted Paper:

Transitions: the life course in context (session 2 of the workshop)  
Sophie Day (Goldsmiths College, University of London)

Paper short abstract:

Idioms of development have been discussed in the literature on history and I present parallels with questions that sex workers in London asked about their own lives. I explore the interplay between 'larger' and 'smaller' histories, arguing that sex workers' accounts illuminate widespread biographical conventions.
