Transnational History workshop held at Brookes

Monday, 14 May 2012


The Oxford Brookes Centre for the History of Welfare recently collaborated with the Voluntary Action History Society to host the first of two transnational history workshops. The first part of the workshop was dedicated to a VAHS New Researchers session, featuring a number of excellent papers on the transnational history of humanitarianism, while the afternoon session brought together some of the latest research on transnational networks in European welfare history, with speakers including Oxford Brookes' Dr Tom Crook and the University of Oxford's Professor Patricia Clavin.  The feedback from attendees was overwhelmingly positive and a report of the event is now available. Dr Kevin O'Sullivan has also written about the day for the VAHS blog - see 'Charity Begins at Home? Transnational Histories of Humanitarianism'.
