Unofficial Histories

Conference, 15-16 June 2013, Manchester, UK
Dear Friends,

Following a successful first conference in London in 2012, we're delighted to announce details and the Call for Participation for the second Unofficial Histories conference. The conference aims to explore how society produces, presents, and consumes history beyond official and elite versions of the past. The 2013 conference will take place in Manchester (UK) and this time we're making a weekend of it:

*Saturday 15th June 2013 will be a day of papers, presentations and debate at Manchester Metropolitan University, Oxford Road, Manchester.

*Sunday 16th June 2013 will be a relaxed day of informal activities exploring the theme of 'Unofficial Histories' (details TBC).

We now invite presentation proposals for the meeting on Saturday 15th June 2013 to be held at Manchester Metropolitan University. You can find the full Call for Participation at

Conference registration will open in January 2013.

We hope to see you in June 2013!

Best wishes,

Fiona Cosson, Cath Feely & Ian Gwinn- Organisers of Unofficial Histories 2013
