Unofficial Histories Conference June 15 – 16 2013
After a successful first conference in London last year, the second conference is being organised in Manchester this June. According to the conference website, ‘It aims to bring together those who wish to consider historical engagements and understandings that take place within, on the edges of, or outside “official” sites that produce and transmit historical knowledge and ideas’.
The Saturday has a range of workshop speakers including me on my research on the dairies of Laurance Holman. Sunday includes a range of historical walks around Manchester.
Starts 9 on Saturday and finishes 3.30 on Sunday. To register for the weekend at the very reasonable price of £20 go here.
