The Metropolis on Trial

An International Conference at the Open University, Milton Keynes
10-12 July 2008

This conference heralds and celebrates the completion of the Old Bailey online project. From the early summer of 2008 it will be possible to consult at http://www.oldbaileyonline.org not only the Proceedings of the Old Bailey from 1674 to 1834 but also those of its successor, the Central Criminal Court, from 1834 to 1913. Papers at the conference will draw upon these proceedings, or those of similar courts in other metropolitan centres, to explore aspects of cultural, social or political life from the late eighteenth to the early twentieth centuries.

Clive Emsley, Open University
Tim Hitchcock, University of Hertfordshire
Bob Shoemaker, University of Sheffield

Proposals for papers, not more than 200 words please, should be sent by Friday 7 December 2007, to Sue Watkins, Dept of History, Open University, Milton Keynes MK7 6AA, United Kingdom. Email: S.Watkins@open.ac.uk
