Commodity Histories is a public forum for research postings, news and information about the history of commodities, with a particular focus on locations in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and Latin America. The website was launched in September 2013 with funding from the AHRC and the British Academy. Principal Investigator Sandip Hazareesingh and Community Manager Matthew Paskins will outline the innovative features of this digital project from the perspectives both of the discipline of history and of its community-building objectives, which are designed to ‘authorise’ and bring to public attention a range of voices, experiences and sources that have so far remained marginal to the concerns of Digital Humanities
A sandwich lunch will be served to registered participants. Please email Heather Scott firstname.lastname@example.org by 21 October to reserve a place.
