We extend an invitation to all who are interested in the history of towns and cities: please send us details of news and announcements, publications, courses and conferences and we will include these in this diary and the monthly gazette.

Contributions are also welcome from students and from organisations or groups who wish to publicise activities associated with urban history. UHN is intended as a European exchange forum but no geographical area is excluded.

Items for the diary and newsletter or comments on the website can be submitted to uhnews@le.ac.uk (Please send lengthy items as Word or PDF attachments). Items will generally be posted in the diary within 48 hours of receipt.

  
General CUH or academic enquiries should be addressed to cuh@le.ac.uk.

Newsletter deadlines

The Newsletter is published on or around the 3rd of each month. Please send news items by the 1st of the month to guarantee inclusion. It is not always possible to include articles at short notice and those received after the 1st may be held over until the following month.

While we are happy to list events where English will not be the main language, we would ask that you provide an English version of your notice for inclusion in the newsletter.
