Conferences

Durham University hosts numerous conferences across a range of disciplines throughout the year. Many of these touch upon themes that are evident in the collections related to the Durham Residential Research Library. Visiting Fellows are encouraged to participate in these conferences.

RRL Launch conference: ‘Libraries, Learning and Religious Identities: Britain, Ireland and the European Context, c.1100 to c.1900’

10–13 September 2019

The conference aims to take a broad and inclusive approach to its theme, exploring not only libraries as institutions, but also their social, intellectual and cultural contexts. Geographically, the conference aims to include Britain and Ireland, including the experiences of natives of the British Isles on the continent and institutions, such as the English Catholic colleges, established by exiles.
