Urban History Group Conference at Warwick – Urban Poverty: Wealth, Inequality and Experience 1600-2014

The 2014 Urban History Group Conference programme is now available on the Urban History Group website. This year’s conference, to be held on 27-28 March 2014 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.
