IHR Winter Conference 2018

Home, New Histories of Living

8 - 9 February 2018, Institute of Historical Research, Senate House, Malet Street, WC1E 7HU

Restored almshouse shelves

In association with The Geffrye and inspired by the theme of the conference, Home: New Histories of Living, the IHR are inviting attendees and speakers to contribute a photograph to the #myhistoryshelfie project. The photograph can be taken in your home or another living space and is any photograph of a mantelpiece, shelf or horizontal display which holds objects that mean something to you. We hope that #myhistoryshelfie will act as a prototype for future endeavours at the Geffrye relating to ‘the mantelpiece’.

Share your shelfie to enter our photo contest! Find out more here.
