The 16th Annual Symposium of the Parish Network will take place at the University of Warwick on Saturday 12 May 2018 from 10.30 to 18.00. It explores developments and historiographical trends linking parishes and migration from different perspectives. This includes classic demographic approaches as well as new insights inspired by cultural and global history.

Organized in conjunction with the Marie Skłodowska-Curie project ‘Migration in the Early Modern World’ (MIGMED), the Symposium features papers on British, German and Middle Eastern parishes by postgraduates, early career researchers and senior scholars.

For the full programme and (mandatory) online registration - at rates of £15 for postgraduates / unwaged and £25 for other delegates, both including lunch and refreshments - by 30 April 2018 please visit the symposium homepage at:

Further information is available from my-parish@warwick.ac.uk, Beat Kümin (Department of History) or Felicita Tramontana (Centre for the Study of the Renaissance).

The Parish Network would be delighted to welcome anyone with parish-related research interests in May.
