‘Town and Gown’ workshop

Daily Life and the Capital City Research Group, Saturday 17 November 2012, Oxford Brookes University

Funded by the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

This workshop, hosted by the Daily Life and the Capital City Research Group based at Oxford Brookes, will bring together possible partners who can contribute in the near future or over the longer term to the ‘Town and Gown’ project led by Dr Sabine Chaouche and Dr Katherine Watson.

The project focuses on the daily life of Oxford University students, staff and faculty from 1700 to 1920, and in the longer term will seek to draw comparisons between the major universities of Oxford and the Sorbonne in Paris (re the daily life theme).

In the morning we will explore the history of Oxford and, broadly, its representations in various contexts, as well as comparative aspects relating to Oxford, London and Paris. In the afternoon, we will focus on digitisation in the Humanities and will present more specifically our project in collaboration with the University of Oxford.
