History Postgraduate Conference
'Charity and Community'
13-15 June 2009, Roehampton University London
This innovative conference will bring together postgraduate students and early career historians with professionals from the charity sector to discuss and debate the themes of charity and community within both historical and contemporary contexts. Approaches will include: how do and how have communities responded to social, political, economic and cultural initiatives aimed at tackling poverty or providing charity; what can be learned from history in terms of the successes and failures of such initiatives and their effects upon communities; and how does knowledge of the relationship between such initiatives and communities make us better able to respond to contemporary and future challenges?
Prof. Christopher Dyer (University of Leicester)
Prof. Steve Hindle (University of Warwick)
