Tales from the Old Bailey: Writing a New History From Below
De Haviland Campus, University of Hertfordshire, July 5-6 2004
Marking the completion of the first phase of the Old Bailey Online project, this conference will highlight current research undertaken on the Old Bailey Proceedings and similar sources. It brings together papers that exemplify new work on the histories of popular culture, criminality and social outsiders. Showcasing a variety of approaches to writing the history of everyday life, it combines the best of the tradition of 'history from below' with the most innovative theoretical developments of the last thirty years.
The two day conference, to be held at the University of Hertfordshire (22 minutes by train from central London) on Monday and Tuesday the 5th and 6th of July 2004, will include eight sessions and a plenary discussion. For further information, and to register for the conference, see our website. Registration forms should be returned by 31 May.
