The Third Unofficial Histories Conference

THE details and appeal for Participation at the third Unofficial Histories conference, to be held on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th June 2014 in Huddersfield at the University of Huddersfield , UK., are as follows:
The Unofficial Histories conference aims to explore how society produces, presents, and consumes history beyond official and elite versions of the past. It seeks to bring together those who wish to consider the value and purpose of 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 third Unofficial Histories conference will take place in Huddersfield over two days:
·        Saturday 7 June 2014 will be a day of papers, presentations and debate at University of Huddersfield, Queensgate, Huddersfield.
·        Sunday 8 June 2014 will be a relaxed day of informal activities in Huddersfield exploring the theme of ’Unofficial Histories’.
We now invite presentation proposals for the meeting on Saturday 7th June 2014 to be held at University of Huddersfield.
