AHRB Centre NEEHI Annual International Conference
2001: PEOPLES AND MIGRATIONS England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales in Comparative Perspective
The AHRB Centre for North-East England History was established, as NEEHI, in 1995 to bring together the five north-eastern universities (Durham, Newcastle, Northumbria, Sunderland and Teesside) in association with the Open University, the Beamish Industrial Museum and other partners, to study regionalism and regional identity over a very long time span. This is the 5th annual international conference. The topic is migration, one of the most important demographic, economic and cultural phenomena in human history.
Proposals for papers are invited which relate directly to aspects of the history of North East England, but papers which relate to broader migration themes in British or Irish history are also welcome, as are international comparisons and theoretical studies. There is no restriction as to time period, and interdisciplinary perspectives are encouraged. It is hoped that new researchers as well as established scholars will offer papers.
Themes for consideration include:
Emigration and return migration
British regional identity and the migration effect
Economic aspects of migration
Associational culture and migration
Borders, boundaries and migration
Assimilation, integration and ethnic plurality
Outline proposals (100/200 words) should be sent to:
Professor A.C. Hepburn at address below, e-mail preferred.
