Second Urban History Summer School 2004 at Leicester
(New Deadline!! 15/04/2004)
The Centre for Urban History, Leicester, UK, is hosting a residential summer school in June/ July 2004. “The Making of Urban Britain 1700-2000”, a week long programme which pioneered successfully in 2003, will explore three centuries of urban history covering topics from the eighteenth century town to the development of the post-war new towns through lectures and fieldwork. The course explores Leicester’s rich historical past, the diverse midlands region and includes day trips to Derbyshire, the heartland of the industrial revolution, to the nineteenth century cities of Wolverhampton and Birmingham and to the pioneering Letchworth Garden City. The course draws upon the wealth of expertise and the successful teaching record of the Centre for Urban History at the University of Leicester.
“The Making of Urban Britain 1700-2000” runs from Sunday 27th June to Sunday 4th July 2004. Further information is available from the address below.
