Three members of the Port Towns and Urban Cultures project team are delighted to be giving papers at the Centre for Port & Maritime History, Liverpool, conference on ‘The “Otherness” of Port Cities,’ 2013. This is the second conference from the Centre for Port & Maritime History, which is a collaborative venture between The University of Liverpool, Liverpool John Moores University, and Merseyside Maritime Museum.
The PTUC delegates will feature on a special panel entitled ‘Regional Otherness I: The Port City of Portsmouth.’ The papers we will be giving are:
- Brad Beaven, Portsmouth: The ‘Immoral Economy of the Crowd’: Sailor and civilian relations in Naval Towns c.1820-1914
- Louise Moon, Portsmouth: ‘Sailorhoods’ – Enumerating ‘Otherness’ in the port of Portsmouth, c. 1850-1900
- Melanie Bassett, Portsmouth: The creation of urban communities in an Edwardian Dockyard town: the ‘otherness’ of Admiralty Dockyard employees
This will be a great opportunity for the Port Towns and Urban Cultures research group to consolidate our partnerships in the ‘Port City Lives’ network with the Universities of Liverpool, John Moores, Hull and Warwick. We look forward to attending and reporting back!
