The Centre for Urban History invites all interested postgraduate students and new researchers to a workshop devoted to the discussion of urban development through history. Proposals are invited for papers exploring any aspect of Rhythms and Rituals in urban Europe from 1700.
Proposals for papers – including title, author’s name and institution, and c.300 word abstract – should be sent to the organisers at the Centre for Urban History, preferably as an email attachment in ms word, by 31st July 2005. Papers should be no more than 20 minutes in length.
The Workshop is organised by postgraduate students for other postgraduate students and new researchers and provides a relaxed environment for presentation of work in progress. Students whose work is not yet at a presentation stage are invited to attend to hear and discuss work with others in an informal setting; the Workshop also offers a valuable opportunity to share experiences of life as a research student. This is predominantly an historical meeting but we aim to continue the exchange between postgraduate students and new researchers with a variety of research interests and academic disciplines within the humanities and social sciences.
PLEASE NOTE the workshop is for the presentation of work by postgraduate students and new researchers; papers from established academics will not be accepted.
