Durham University hosts numerous conferences across a range of disciplines throughout the year. Many of these touch upon themes that are evident in the collections related to the Durham Residential Research Library. Visiting Fellows are encouraged to participate in these conferences.
RRL Launch conference: ‘Libraries, Learning and Religious Identities: Britain, Ireland and the European Context, c.1100 to c.1900’
10–13 September 2019
The conference aims to take a broad and inclusive approach to its theme, exploring not only libraries as institutions, but also their social, intellectual and cultural contexts. Geographically, the conference aims to include Britain and Ireland, including the experiences of natives of the British Isles on the continent and institutions, such as the English Catholic colleges, established by exiles.
I greatly enjoyed the panels I saw at @ResearchDurham conf the past two days. @ElizabethCBiggs discussed an interesting copy of the Malleus Maleficarum held at Durham, while @EilishGregory revealed the extent of letters/material held at Ushaw concerning 18thC recusancy in Britain
Had a fantastic time at @ResearchDurham conference in Durham. Was great to see familiar faces and meet new ones and to hear a vast array of papers across a long time period. I will probably try and sum up a few papers I heard tomorrow. Until then: https://t.co/xcdF6Debtu
