A SENSE OF PLACE : THE CITY AND THE SENSES

1998 European Urban History Conference


Place:
Venice

Time:
3-5 September 1998

Conference Theme:
A sense of place: the city and the senses. The Research Group for European Urban Culture at the University of Northumbria at Newcastle has been invited to organise one of the Main Sessions at the 4th European Urban History Conference in Venice.

Papers in the 'Sense of Place' session, which embraces all periods of urban history from medieval to contemporary , will engage with the five senses in an urban context. We see this as a line of enquiry which will encourage imaginative responses from scholars engaged with a whole range of disciplines relating to the urban experience.
