The second international one-day colloquium organized by the Journal of the Oxford University History Society - the JOUHS 2011 ‘I know my place’: the interaction of urban space and social hierarchies in history’ – will take place at Trinity College, 0xford, on 14 May.
The aim of the conference is to explore how cities and other urban spaces have been constructed historically, and contested by different groups at different times, with a view to shed new light on the study of social hierarchies in the past.
Papers will be presented by historians from England, Scotland, Spain, Ireland, India and the US.
Dr. Bob Harris (Worcester College, University of Oxford), leader of the AHRC project 'Scottish Towns and Urban Society in the Enlightenment, c.1745- 1820' and co-author of Dundee: Renaissance to Enlightenment (Dundee, 2009) and Dr. William Whyte (St. John's College, University of Oxford), Tutorial Fellow in History, will be Keynote Speakers.
There is no admission fee. All are very welcome.
