Keynote Announcement!

We are very pleased to announce that Professor Peter Gatrell (Manchester University) has agreed to provide the keynote address.

Professor Gatrell has published prolifically on the subject of refugees and displacement across the twentieth century. His latest book The Making of the Modern Refugee is due out in 2013 with Oxford University Press.

He is also active in the AHRC-funded project on the dissemination of research on refugees in post-1945 Europe (in collaboration with Dr Jenny Carson, HCRI, and colleagues at the University of Nottingham).


Welcome to the blog for the conference on Gender, the Refugee and Displacement, 1900-1950 which will be held at Newcastle University on 5th July 2013!

As the conference gets closer you will be able to find information here on everything from accommodation to draft programmes for the day.
