Metropolis on Trial

by Nick

Sharon Howard very kindly invited me to host the February edition of Carnivalesque, which I’m really looking forward to, so it would be bad form for me not to mention her blog for a conference about the Metropolis on Trial, celebrating the end of the Old Bailey Online project.

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.
