Birkbeck Call for Papers

Birkbeck Call for Papers

An academic conference will be held at Birkbeck, University of London, to mark the institution's 200th anniversary.  Useful Knowledge, to be held at Birkbeck in February 2022 (ahead of the college's bicentenary in 2023), will feature talks by leading historians and critics including Sir Richard Evans, Sally Alexander, Jerry White and Marai Larasi.

The conference, being organised by Professor Joanna Bourke's 'Birkbeck Knowledge' research group, is set to focus on the long history of the college, but also on the past, present and future of part-time and mature higher education more broadly.

Professor Bourke's PhD students CiarĂ¡n O'Donohue and Jonny Matfin have recently launched a CfP, aimed at all academics with an interest in the history of part-time and mature higher education.

The Call for Papers (CfP) deadline has now been extended to Friday, 5 November 2021.
