Day 2: HSMT Postgraduate Conference: The Ox-cars

The two-day conference plans to illuminate – in bright white spotlight, of course – the dazzling research of this year’s cohort. Bringing historical narratives to life in intricate detail, the conference spans four centuries and will discuss topics ranging from Scottish asylum patients’ use of expression in patient-produced magazines, through to counter cartography in late twentieth-century Chocó, Colombia. So, why indulge in a Hollywood Blockbuster when you have the most thought-provoking narratives right on your doorstep? We look forward to you helping us roll out the red carpet and erupting in applause. (Popcorn not provided!).
