Last Booking Date for this Event

In 2015, the Centre for Modern British Studies hosted the ‘Rethinking Modern British Studies Conference’. #MBS2015 went far beyond anything we expected, bringing together around three hundred British historians over three days and four parallel sessions. The conference provided striking evidence of a vibrant and diverse field, but it was one part of what Stuart Hall might call an ‘unfinished conversation’. We’d like to continue that dialogue about the nature, status and effects of our histories on modern Britain, and so from Wednesday 5 to Friday 7 July, the Centre for Modern British Studies will host another three day conference at the University of Birmingham.

The conference organisers are providing 100 free sponsorships to postgraduate students and those on fixed term contracts with no conference support – we are eager to increase this further and would welcome any donations to help us do this. If you would like to donate please click here.
