SEVENTEENTH COLLOQUIUM ON CEMETERIES

University of York, United Kingdom, Friday 20th May, 2016

This event takes place in York every year and comprises a day meeting of scholars with an interest in cemeteries and burial. The event is open to all disciplines, and past papers have represented research by historians, art historians, sociologists, anthropologists, historical archaeologists, landscape designers and architects, conservators and policy analysts. The Colloquium often draws international speakers. A key aspect of the Colloquium is its informality: a focus on debate makes this a highly valuable forum in which to present new and emerging research.

Abstracts of no more than 250 words should be sent to julie.rugg@york.ac.uk. Please ensure that the abstract is in Word format. Any queries about the event should in the first instance be directed by email to the address given.

Note that this year two postgraduate bursaries will be available to cover the cost of the conference fee only. Please send a letter of application to julie.rugg@york.ac.uk

The deadline for abstracts is 18th April 2016, although earlier confirmation may be available for international visitors.
