About the seminar

The Centre seminar series builds on IHR strengths in both local history and in urban and metropolitan history, bringing together academics, heritage professionals, creative practitioners and others to present new work and forge new approaches to making histories of place and people. It seeks to bridge disciplinary silos and foster comparative, connected conversations, and to identify opportunities to make both theoretical and practice-led interventions in contemporary debates around space and place.
