In a major collaboration with the V&A, the IHR is taking Fashion as the theme for its 2015 annual conference, and we're looking for proposals on the themes of dress, imitation and emulation, taste and style, body-art, the fashion-industry and its media, fashionability and trend-setting, catwalks, fairs and exhibitions, innovation in interior design, architecture and public space, fashion education and technology.

London and the First World War

Registration is now open for this major conference, organised by IWM (Imperial War Museums) in partnership with the Centre for Metropolitan History, exploring the ways in which London and its inhabitants were affected by, and involved with the 1914-18 conflict.
