As vibrant and dynamic urban centres, as nodes in long histories of colonialism and globalisation, and as zones of interaction and exchange, port cities have been important sites of research in the humanities and social sciences.
This two-day workshop conference, to be held in the historic port city of Liverpool, will bring together researchers from across the social sciences and humanities who work in and on port cities, with a particular emphasis on the communities and individuals who have inhabited these complex social and cultural spaces of encounter.
Proposals are invited for both individual and joint presentations on Port City Lives throughout history and across the world. Deadline for submissions: 30 April 2012, to Dr Kirsty Hooper (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr Joanna Long (email@example.com). Please see the conference website (http://portcitylives.wordpress.com/) for further information.
