Eighteenth Warwick Symposium on Parish Research

'Remembering the Parish' - CALL FOR REGISTRATIONS

Webinar to be held on Saturday 7 November 2020, 10 am to 6 pm

The 2020 Symposium of the Warwick Network for Parish Research addresses the theme of remembrance very broadly defined. In five panels dedicated to 'Buildings', 'Communities', 'Records', 'Revolution' and 'Environments', speakers from four countries explore aspects of material culture and natural settings, local commemorative cultures, various types of primary evidence and the long-term repercussions of moments of change from the Middle Ages to the present.

TEASERS OF SYMPOSIUM CONTENT

 

CALL FOR DISCUSSANTS

The Network warmly invites anyone with an active research interest in parishes to join us as a discussant. Rather than a physical face-to-face meeting, this year the Symposium will take the form of an online webinar using the Blackboard software - all you need is a device with an internet connection. For organizational reasons, however, advance registration is required.

All registered participants will receive access details shortly before the Symposium. On the day, the hosts will strive to run everything as simply and smoothly as possible but please bear with us in case of any practical issues. For advance information on how Blackboard works you can check out this introductory video.
