Victorian Cities Revisited: Heritage and History Conference
Middlesbrough, 15-16th October 2014
Confirmed Speakers: Professor Barry Doyle (University of Huddersfield); Professor Bob Morris (University of Edinburgh)
Victorian Cities Revisited: Heritage and History Conference seeks to explore the legacy of Asa Briggs' landmark Victorian Cities by considering how the heritage and history sectors have explored and revised perceptions of this period of vast urban transformation, both in the United Kingdom and across the globe.
In partnership with the University of Huddersfield, Victorian Cities Revisited is part of the £2.6m Heritage Lottery Fund supported Tees Transporter Bridge Visitor Experience Project. The Conference will take place in the Victorian boom town of Middlesbrough on 15-16th October 2014 and includes optional visits to a number of heritage sites in the town including the landmark Tees Transporter Bridge.
The organisers invite proposals for papers of 20 minutes on any aspect of the heritage and history of the Victorian City including but not limited to:
Changing perceptions of Victorian Cities
Spaces and places in Victorian Cities
Living and working in the Victorian City
Elites in the Victorian City
Victorian Cities, heritage and museums
Resources for researching Victorian Cities
Proposals for papers of 20 minutes, including an abstract of no more than 500 words and a brief biographical statement, should be emailed by Monday 30th June to Tosh Warwick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The organisers would like to acknowledge the Economic History Society and Middlesbrough Council in supporting this Call for Papers.
