 HobsbawmCartoon

Starts:Apr 29, 2014 05:00 PM Finishes:May 01, 2014 06:00 PM Location: Senate House, London

A conference on the current trajectories of history

A major international conference, with plenary speakers and large parallel sessions, exploring where the study of history is currently heading. The conference draws inspiration from the capacious legacy of the late Eric Hobsbawm, but is not a memorial event. We aim, rather, to bring together discussion about what we are currently doing as socially-committed historians, where we are headed, and what it means to be an historian in the twenty-first century.
