In 2023 - 2024 Nottingham Trent University and The National Archives run their fourth iteration of the Workhouse Lives seminar series.
This year our focus is on the workhouse ‘in its place and space’. In essence we are interested in the way that workhouses interact with the wider communities of which they were part (or sometimes) on which they were imposed. We consider topics across a wide spectrum from fights over access to churches through the relationships between workhouses and other institutions, and to disputes over the very siting of new workhouse buildings.
Join us on the first Tuesday of each month from 5 pm to 6.30 pm for an exciting engagement with this very under-researched topic.
