The 5th Annual Local History Conference Delivered by Enthusiasts at the University Centre

Students and recent graduates of the BA(Hons) English and History Studies degree delivered a range of fascinating papers centred on the research undertaken by students during the final year of the degree at the 5th Annual Local History Conference.

Stephanie Codd, Programme Leader said, “The students had produced some excellent work and that their research had contributed to the knowledge of the local area.” 

Some of the varied topics included: the drainage of Isle of Axholme (Dan Winter); John Coupland Hospital in Gainsborough (Cheryl Smith); Industry in New Holland (Kim Kirby) and the courtyards of Brigg (Kevin Thompson). 

The conference is part of the extra curricula activities offered at the University Centre.  Susan Dent (BA Hons English and History student) said, “The student led conference had been inspirational and that it was good to see the kind of work studied over the course of the degree.”
The English and History Studies degree, awarded by the University of Lincoln, is popular with students coming back to learning after a break or who are looking to study around work or family commitments. There are still limited places for an immediate start this month. 
The University Centre based at North Lindsey College have arranged a number of talks relating to literature which will take place over the next few months which are all open to the public.
