Sixteenth Warwick Symposium on Parish Research

Registration Poster 2018
Logo PARISHES AND MIGRATION

Our annual symposium will take place at the University of Warwick on Saturday 12 May 2018 10.30-18.00. It explores developments and historiographical trends linking parishes and migration from different perspectives. This includes classic demographic approaches as well as new insights inspired by cultural and global history. We are delighted to announce our keynote address:


Richard M. Smith (Cambridge)
'55 years since Laslett's "Clayworth and Cogenhoe": What have we learned about pre-modern mobility?'

 

Organized in conjunction with the Marie Skłodowska-Curie project ‘Migration in the Early Modern World’ (MIGMED), the Symposium features contributions on British, German and Middle Eastern parishes from postgraduates, early career researchers and faculty staff whose research intersects with these themes:

  • Phil Batman, Leicester: 'The Fate of Irish Potato Famine Immigrants in a York parish'
  • David Fletcher, Warwick: 'Strangers and Pilgrims on the Earth’: The mobility of nonconformist clergy after the 1662 Great Ejection'
  • Kevin Hall, Edinburgh: 'Criminal Migrant Networks in an Urban Parish: Canongate (1590 – 1610)'
  • Marion Hardy, Exeter: 'Inter-parish, transhumant and transient migrants in Devon c. 1600-1800'
  • Bethany Marsh, Nottingham: 'A grim spectacle: the migration and relief of ‘Irish’ refugees in London, 1641-1651'
  • Tom Roberts, Liverpool: ‘"By the Venecian Shipps": Resituating the Italians in Elizabethan London'
  • Felicita Tramontana, Warwick: 'Migration in Palestine parishes'
