14-16 May 2015: ‘Public and Private’: Interdisciplinary Workshop

Date: Thu 14-16 May 2015
Time: 12:00
Venue: University of Glasgow, Glasgow G12 8QQ, United Kingdom

Economic and Social History at Glasgow is launching a major new research theme of ‘public and private’ to act as an umbrella for its diverse research activities. These reach across business, financial, gender, labour, medical, and oral history as well as most types of modern economic and social history. A warm welcome will be extended to all colleagues, students and friends who are interested in attending all or parts of this launch event. Speakers include invited visitors, who will address the ‘public and private’ theme from a number of perspectives, and members of staff and graduate students in ESH who will examine the ways in which this theme can be deployed in research across a wide range of important topics.

Refreshments will be available at various points in the workshop, along with a buffet lunch at the conclusion of proceedings on Friday 15 May, courtesy of the Economic History Society, the main sponsor of the event, and the University of Glasgow’s MacFie Bequest. Attendance is free of charge, but for catering purposes those intending to participate should notify Jim Phillips, Head of Economic & Social History, by Friday 8 May if possible: James.Phillips@glasgow.ac.uk
