Announcement - SUMMER SCHOOL

The Centre for Urban History, Leicester, UK, is hosting a residential
summer school from 26 June to 3 July 2005. 'The Making of Urban
Britain 1700-2000', a week-long programme which pioneered
successfully in 2003, will explore three centuries of urban history
covering topics from the eighteenth-century town to the development
of the post-war new towns through lectures and fieldwork.

The course explores Leicester's rich historical past, the diverse
midlands region and includes day trips to Derbyshire, the heartland
of the industrial revolution, to the nineteenth century cities of
Wolverhampton and Birmingham and to the pioneering Letchworth Garden
City. The course draws upon the wealth of expertise and the
successful teaching record of the Centre for Urban History at the
University of Leicester.
