Sixteenth Warwick Symposium on Parish Research


Our annual symposium will take place at the University of Warwick on Saturday 12 May 2018 between 10.30 and 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 that Richard M. Smith (Cambridge) will be giving the key-note address.
Organized in conjunction with the Marie Skłodowska-Curie ‘MIGMED’ project, the Symposium invites proposals from postgraduates, early career researchers and faculty staff whose research intersects with these themes. Contributions on non-European, Continental European and British/Irish parishes are equally welcome. We can offer speakers free registration, lunch/refreshments and budget travel within England.

Please send 1-page abstracts for 15-minute papers together with a short biographical note
to and by 20 February 2018.

For further information contact Beat Kümin (History) or Felicita Tramontana
(Centre for the Study of the Renaissance).
