Event description

Description

The Open University will be hosting its annual two-day conference on spaces and places on 23-24 February 2018.

The conference will examine life in buildings, institutions and broader geographical areas from a variety of perspectives and will consider the following questions:

  • How were medieval and early modern spaces adapted and transformed through the movement of material and immaterial things?

  • Which particular aspects of political, social and economic infrastructures enabled the exchange of objects and ideas?

  • To what extent did a sense of place depend upon the activities taking place there?

A provisional programme can be viewed here. The registration fee includes lunch and refreshments. The deadline for registration is 9 February.

Accommodation and Conference Dinner

The Open University is located just outside Milton Keynes centre. If you would like to stay overnight, we suggest that you book a room at a nearby hotel: Kents Hill (http://kentshillpark.com/accommodation). This hotel provides a special discount to Open University-related events, so please mention that you are booking with the Open University when booking—this discount can’t be applied to any external sites, so you’ll need to book it directly with the hotel. The conference dinner (included in the registration fee) will also take place at Kents Hill.
