Angles 3: Another Interdisciplinary Postgraduate Conference on Cultural History

Birkbeck, University of London
Saturday 28 May 2011, 9:30–5:30

Following the success of the Angles conferences in 2009 and 2010, we are returning in 2011 with another one-day event. The aim of the conference is to bring together a range of postgraduate perspectives on cultural history from across the disciplinary spectrum. The focus will be on unusual topics or unconventional approaches to otherwise familiar topics.
