This year’s conference, to be held in March at Warwick, promises much and contains keynotes by Professor Mike Savage from LSE and Dr Pedro Ramos Pinto from the University of Cambridge.
The sessions cover ‘Materiality and Inequality’, ‘Measuring Segregation’, ‘The Emotional Experiences of Urban Poverty’, ‘Poverty and Urban Institutions’ and ‘Governing Inequality’ with papers ranging from nineteenth-century Britain to twentieth-century America. We also have the New Researchers Forum and, new for this year, ten-minute presentations by first-year PhD students which are all designed to generate feedback and discussion on the latest findings in the field and directions for future research.
Until February 4th the early-bird registration fee is just £26 and £10 for registered postgraduates. Registration can be found here: https://www.eventsforce.net/ehs/frontend/reg/tOtherPage.csp?pageID=1448&eventID=3&eventID=3 and we look forward to another intellectually stimulating and sociable Urban History Group conference.
