Humanities/Social Sciences Workshop and Professor Dominique Kalifa as Society for the Study of French History Visiting Scholar

The humanities/social sciences workshop will take place in the Institute of the Humanities next Friday (21 October), to mark the visit of Professor Dominique Kalifa as Society for the Study of French History Visiting Scholar. Professor Kalifa is a leading scholar of nineteenth-century cultural history with wide-ranging and interdisciplinary interests, including crime, the city, the press, and time/periodization.

As the programme shows, the workshop brings together a range of scholars from across the North East to discuss their own work under these four broad thematic headings. This promises to be a very interesting day, with potential for stimulating interdisciplinary discussion and exchange of ideas.

The event takes place in the Institute of the Humanities, First Floor, Lipman Building. All are welcome to attend, and it would be helpful if you could RSVP me just so I can get a sense of numbers for catering. Please share details with anyone else you feel would be interested in attending.

A reminder of two other events taking place in Durham and Newcastle as part of Professor Kalifa’s visit:

Wednesday 19 October – Lecture at the Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies, Durham University on ‘The True Story of the French Belle Époque’ – details here:

Thursday 20 October – Workshop for PGs (though non-PGs are welcome to attend!) on ‘Time, periodization, and naming time’ in G.09, Percy Building, Newcastle University (3-5pm) – hosted by the Labour and Society Research Group.

If you have any queries about any of these events, please contact
