Thanks to Ian Waites’ Instances of a Changed Society I’ve been alerted to a really interesting looking conference that is taking place next July entitled: The Transformation of Urban Britain Since 1945. It’s being organised by the Centre for Urban History, University of Leicester and the deadline for abstracts is Friday 1st February 2013.
I particularly like the fact the event is aiming to:
…bring together not only different types of historian – social, cultural, economic, urban, planning – around this subject but also others who have a direct interest in it: conservationists, policymakers, journalists and others. One of the purposes of the conference is to create a network of scholars and practitioners on post-war urban Britain.
