Registration now open for South East Hub 2018

Join us at the University of Kent for the 2018 South East Hub, a postgraduate and early career researcher conference with the theme: ‘Victims, Perpetrators, Bystanders and Collaborators as historical concepts: Redundant labels, useful categorisations or somewhere in between?’

The South East Hub 2018 will be held in the Grimond building (University of Kent, Canterbury campus) on 19th June and is co-funded by CHASE and the University of Kent School of History. The conference is an opportunity for research postgraduates and early career researchers to discuss their topics in a friendly and supportive environment. This year, papers will address the conceptual utility of the terms victims, perpetrators, bystanders and collaborators in a variety of historical contexts.

The panels are: ‘Accusation, Collaboration and Resistance’, ‘The Victim Voice’, ‘Simultaneous Categories’, and ‘Regimes and the Right’. The keynote talk will be delivered by Professor Tim Cole and is entitled, ‘Perpetrators, victims and bystanders: Writing integrated histories and geographies’.

The conference is free to attend. Lunch, tea and coffee will also be provided, and a wine reception will follow the event. Please note that there are limited spaces, so places are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration closes on May 18th, so register as soon as possible to secure your attendance at the conference.
