Final Call For Papers & Delegate Registration for Cornwall Connections

On 12th March 2016, I am co-organising, with the Institute of Cornish Studies a symposium at Royal Holloway, University of London at Egham in association with the Geography Department of that historic institution. The aim of the day is to explore both historical and contemporary connections between Cornwall and London with papers exploring topics like migration, identity through sport and centre-periphery relations. We would welcome papers from a broad range of disciplines and presented in a conventional lecture format or in a film or poster presentation.

The day will hold major interest to anyone with a connection with Cornwall – and is most definitely not just for academics! Admission is free. Those attending can obtain lunch (at a charge) in the university refectory. There will also be a tour of Royal Holloway’s historic chapel and quadrangles.

It is appropriate that the symposium is being held at Egham since Thomas Holloway, the founder of the institution, had Cornish connections. If successful the aim is to hold similar events in the future both in other areas of Britain and overseas.

If you are interested in attending or giving a presentation please send an abstract of 150 words along with name, title and institutional affiliation to both cornishstudies@exeter.ac.uk and ben.gilby.2014@live.rhul.ac.uk by 10th February.
