Town and Gown Workshop, org. by Dr S. Chaouche and Dr K. Watson

Daily Life and the Capital City Research Group

Workshop: Town and Gown
Saturday 17 November 2012
Venue: Oxford Brookes University, Green Room, Headington Hill Hall

Town and Gown Workshop, org. by Dr S. Chaouche and Dr K. Watson
The workshop focuses on the daily life of Oxford University students, staff and faculty from 1700 to 1920, and in the longer term will seek to draw comparisons between the major universities of Oxford and the Sorbonne in Paris (re the daily life theme).

In the morning we will explore the history of Oxford and, broadly, its representations in various contexts, as well as comparative aspects relating to Oxford, London and Paris.

In the afternoon, we will focus on digitisation in the Humanities and will present more specifically our project in collaboration with the University of Oxford.
