Earlier this month I attended two conferences in a week. Not great planning on my part but it was really interesting to move across geographical locations and organisational structures to ask in essence very similar questions but with very different answers. The first symposium I attended as a discussant was Rethinking Contemporary British Political History at Queen Mary’s Mile End campus organised by Dr Helen McCarthy. (The second was the Workshop on Voluntary Action and Philanthropy at Frankfurt University which I will write about later)
I was going to write a blog about Twitter, and voice and collectively generated knowledge, but this came out instead. It is a starting point, for thinking through #beforethedrugsrunout
After a couple of years sponging off the Observing the 80s page I thought that it was about time I sorted myself out and got my own blog. I will be importing various older posts and using the space to blog on my current and forthcoming projects. I’m also hoping to invite occasional visiting posters. So do get in touch if you’ve got something to share.
