Discounted student places: Coming to London Conference 2010

Tue 13th Jul, 2010

Archives for London are offering 6 student places at the subsidised price of £10 for their October conference, Coming to London.  As a bustling centre of trade and commerce, London has always been a popular destination for the cultural diaspora. Through archives we can trace that London has attracted, and offered refuge to, millions of people from round the world.

AfL’s annual conference, Coming to London will explore how and why individuals and groups ended up in London, and how they changed it. From internal migration, through to the activities of the West African Students Union, the diversity of subjects covered is shaping up to offer a fascinating day of discovery.’
